    MyBenefits, Your All-In-One Portal

    Our claimant portal, MyBenefits, takes productivity to a new level, providing one place where you can apply for benefits, file your weekly claim, search for jobs, manage your account, log into SC Works Online Services, and create a resume—anytime, anywhere you have an Internet connection.

    When filing a first-time claim on MyBenefits, you must create an account. All you will need to start the account is a valid email address. If you don’t have an email address, you can set one up with a free provider such as Gmail.

    NEW! A MyBenefits Tutorial is now available. This feature shows you step-by-step how to:

    • Create a MyBenefits account
    • File an initial claim online
    • File a weekly claim online
    • File a weekly claim online using a Pay Order Card (POC)
