ACES is an acronym for the Automated Client Eligibility System. This system is used by the State of Washington's Department of Social and Health Services. ACES supports the operations of the department by integrating DSHS programs under a single, client-based, on-line system. The ACES system is a tool for determining eligibility, issuing benefits, management support, and sharing of data between agencies.
