The official portal of Your Texas Benefits, which can be accessed by visiting the website at www.yourtexasbenefits.com, was launched by the Health and Human Services Commission of the state of Texas in the United States of America.

The motivation and aim behind launching the YourTexasBenefits portal is to provide the residents of Texas with an efficient and easy method to apply for the benefits they are eligible for, without having to face any sort of hassles.


With the help of the YourTexasBenefits.com website, any resident of Texas can easily apply for the benefits that are supported by the portal. The application submission is split into several forms that will require you to enter information such as your identity details, contact information, address details, proof of income, etc.

Once you provide all the necessary details and also upload the documents that are required as part of your application review process, then the team at the Texas Health and Human Services Commission will review your application and provide an update on the same.

Now, the YourTexasBenefits website is not the only way to apply for the benefits you are eligible for. There is also the traditional way of submitting a paper application by visiting any partnering agent locations of the Texas HHS.

The benefit of using the YourTexasBenefits portal is that you can make the application submissions in just a matter of minutes, without having to visit any physical locations, which is extremely helpful for people who do not have any Texas HHS agent location nearby in their current location.

Below are the details of the benefits that are supported as part of the YourTexasBenefits portal:
