Surat Keterangan Tidak Mampu (SKTM) is a letter issued by the City of Sukabumi government to help poor citizens with benefits in medical treatment. The applicants are assessed by the local Village to determine the eligibility and amount of benefit to be granted. This process had a problem that the decision made was mostly subjective and based on vaguely defined criteria’s. This could result in the improper categorization and nappropriate distribution of benefits. A Decision Support System is designed to overcome this problem in the form of Recommendation System using Fuzzy AHP method. This method is used as the mathematical model for determining the weights of and refines the assessment of each criterion. The proposed system will calculate the scores of the applicants based on the model and show their poverty categories along with the amount of allowed benefits. The amount of funding is also become more evenly spread across 6 poverty categories compared to the previous 4 categories thus saving more funds to be used for other development programs.
