Tips for Telling Us Your New Address

If  you get cash assistance or SNAP (food stamps) or medical benefits like Medicaid or All Kids from the state of Illinois, you must be sure we always have your correct address.

You can change your mailing address online with U.S. Postal Service or in-person at your  U.S. Post Office. If you keep your address updated with the U.S. Post Office, then your change of address will be reported automatically to Healthcare and Family Services and the Department of Human Services. That way we will automatically change your address for cash assistance, SNAP (food stamps) or Medicaid and All Kids.

You can also tell us your new address by filling out a form online at Illinois Department of Human Services
