How do I apply?

  • Complete the DSS ESAP Application
  • Mail it to ESAP, South Carolina Department of Social Services, PO Box 100229 Columbia, SC 29202.
  • If you are eligible, you will receive benefits beginning the date your application is received. You will be notified in writing of the decision on your case.
