Do I have to use all my SNAP benefits up in the month that I receive them?

unemployed_questionQ) Do I have to use all my SNAP benefits up in the month that I receive them?

A) No. You do not have to use all of your SNAP benefits in the month that you receive them. Any SNAP benefits in your SNAP EBT account at the end of the month WILL be carried over into next month. However, if you do not use your EBT card at all for 1 year, then the remaining balance will be permanently removed from your SNAP EBT account.

  1. To apply for food stamp benefits, or for information about the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), contact your local SNAP office. You can find local offices and each State’s application on the USDA national map. Local offices are also listed in the State or local government pages of the telephone book. The office should be listed under “Food Stamps,” “Social Services,” “Human Services,” “Public Assistance,” or a similar title. You can also call your State’s SNAP hotline numbers. Most are toll-free numbers.

    Each State has its own application form. If your State’s form is not on the web yet, you’ll need to contact your local SNAP office to request one. Please don’t call USDA or HHS headquarters as only your State accepts applications and determines eligibility.
