We can all use some help sometime. Read on for tips, tricks, contact information and helpful hints on how to navigate your Benefits.
How to log into your SDP Google Account:
You can access you Google account from any web browser. If you go to Philasd.org and click on LOGIN and enter your district username and password and then go to drive.google.com and you can log on using the same username and password. Many times you will not need to log on again. Your district username and password is also your Google Username and password. Also, if you have a personal Google account, you will need to log off from the chrome browser and the Google app before logging onto your district account. You can always have your personal account logged in under firefox or safari at the same time your district is logged in under the Chrome browser. For password assistance, contact the help desk at 215-400-5555.

How to complete a fillable PDF form:
View these tips on viewing, completing and troubleshooting fillable PDF forms below and view all the information at https://portal.ct.gov/DEEP/About/Tips-for-Viewing-and-Using-Fillable-PDFs:
Save the form to your computer before completing it
We suggest that you first download the PDF form to your computer or network drive, and then open it with Adobe Reader and fill it. You can either type information directly into each field, or copy and paste text. The font is preselected and cannot be changed. You can only type regular text (upper and lower cases); the system will not accept underlined text, bold or italics, script or formulas, curved or slanted apostrophes, double quotation marks or long dashes.
You can save your data and re-open the file later to modify or enter additional information.
Use the latest version of Adobe Reader
To open and complete the PDF application forms, you will need Adobe Reader (the latest version is recommended). If you do not have it installed on your computer, you may download the latest version free of charge from http://get.adobe.com/reader/otherversions.
Mac users: don’t use Preview
For Macintosh system users: DO NOT use the Preview program to fill in the PDF form. Adobe Reader is the only program that will allow you to work with the form properly, and allow us to read the results once back on a Windows machine. If you do not already have Adobe Reader, please use the link above to install it to your machine.
Chrome users: don’t use Chrome PDF Viewer
For Chrome browser users: DO NOT use the Chrome PDF viewer program to fill in the PDF form. Adobe Reader is the only program that will allow you to work with the form properly. If you do not already have Adobe Reader, please use the link above to install it to your machine. Please use the instructions below to disable Chrome PDF viewer in your browser.
