Single Stop at Miami Dade College
What is Single Stop?
Miami Dade College (MDC) has partnered with Single Stop USA, a non-profit organization, and the partnership has resulted in a brand new "One Stop Shop" for students to get connected to benefits. The concept is to have a place where students can go to get screened for multiple government benefits, receive assistance in applying for those benefits, and have follow-up to see if they have in fact received the benefits they are eligible for. MDC- Single Stop coordinators use a specially designed technology known as BEN (Benefits Enrollment Network) to do rapid screenings, and then assist our clients in applying on line via ACCESS Florida when appropriate. All of our services are free for Miami Dade College students at the North, Kendall, and Wolfson campuses and members of their families.
Free Services Single Stop Offers:
Free Benefits Screening
Single Stop Coordinators determine which public benefits a student or family member is eligible for and help them apply for those benefits.
Free Financial Counseling
Single Stop provides financial advice and helps students and family members to establish or repair credit. On-site financial counselors help families to address debt issues and improve budget management skills. Single Stop helps students and family members develop a plan that allows them to meet their needs.
Free Legal Referrals
Single Stop provides students with various legal referrals to target legal problems, such as Disability claims, tax controversies, unemployment benefit denials, housing issues, discrimination issues, food stamp denials, consumer issues and other legal issues. Referrals and legal counseling available at no cost!
Free Tax Preparation Services
Completely free tax preparation, even if the student or family members use E-File! During the tax season (January through April 15th), students and family members can meet with an IRS-Certified tax preparer and have their taxes prepared for free. Tax preparers will determine if students and family members are eligible to receive the Earned Income, American Opportunity or Child Tax Credits.
