C4Yourself ®

C4Yourself is a component to the C-IV System that allows customers to apply for Food Stamps, Medi-Cal, CalWORKS, and CMSP via the internet. It is a secure self-service, public facing, web-based portal, that streamlines the way data is collected by using a conversational interview approach. Customers enter information to apply for Food Stamps, Medi-Cal, CalWORKS, and CMSP online and the data transfers to the C-IV System automatically. Customers also have the ability to complete and submit their annual redeterminations/recertification's, access their quarterly/mid-year status reports and have the ability to view the status of their case/benefits.

C4Yourself is not just an automation enhancement to the C-IV System; it provides a path to enhanced strategic partnerships with local Community Organizations serving at-risk families.

Counties currently accepting applications through C4Yourself are : Riverside, Imperial, San Bernardino, Kern, Monterey, Kings, San Benito, San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Marin, Napa, Merced, Madera, Tuolumne, Calaveras, Amador, Inyo, Mariposa, Mono, Alpine, Humboldt, Mendocino, Yuba, Sutter, El Dorado, Lake, Nevada, Glenn, Colusa, Butte, Shasta, Tehama, Siskiyou, Del Norte, Lassen, Trinity, Plumas, Modoc and Sierra
