Steuben County now has a new, free mobile application (app) available to county residents that enables them to submit necessary documents. NYDocSubmit, sponsored by the State of New York, is a mobile app that provides individuals who have applied for or are receiving Department of Social Services (DSS) benefits, the ability to simply and quickly submit documentation to the DSS. This mobile app is available for download on Google Play or the Apple App Store and can be used to take photos of documents and upload them to Steuben County DSS.
During this time of COVID-19 restrictions, having the ability to submit the necessary documentation from the comfort and safety of home is essential to continue supporting families in our county. COVID-19 has impacted the employment and income of many county residents. Anyone in receipt of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits whose employment has been affected, either because they are currently unemployed or are experiencing a decrease in hours worked, should report these to changes to Steuben County DSS as soon as possible as it may affect their SNAP benefit amount. A convenient way to report this information is to complete and submit an online SNAP change report form.
If you are now in receipt of unemployment, you can submit proof of this and other documentation using NYDocSubmit.
To download the app:
- Go to the Apple App Store or Google Play Store
