Department of Social Services Food & Nutrition Services

The Anson County Department of Social Services Food and Nutrition Services (formerly called Food Stamps) program is currently in the process of changing computer systems.  The new computer system, known as NCFAST (North Carolina Families Accessing Services through Technology) is replacing one that is over 30 years old.

“The NCFAST system will eventually allow recipients to have one interview and give their information to one worker instead of several workers,” said Anson  County DSS Director Lula Jackson.  Eligibility for all programs will be determined using this single interview and will save the participants time and trips to DSS.   Medicaid and Work First will be the next programs to implement the change from the old system to NCFAST coming later this year.

Anson County DSS serves approximately 10,000 citizens and Jackson said her office strives very hard to make sure benefits are issued timely.
