I have an EBT card but I am only getting $23.00 a month

Q) I have an EBT card but I am only getting $23.00 a month, I need to talk to someone in person to find out to get more. $23 does not cover A WEEK

A) It sounds like you are currently receiving government assistance through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), which is provided through an EBT (Electronic Benefits Transfer) card. If you are only receiving $23 per month, it is possible that your benefits have been reduced due to changes in your income or household size. To find out more information, you can contact your local SNAP office or your state’s Department of Human Services. They should be able to provide more information on your eligibility and how to increase your benefit amount. You can also check the income eligibility guidelines for your state to see if you may qualify for additional benefits. Additionally, you can visit a local food pantry or soup kitchen to get assistance with food while you work to increase your benefit amount.

I understand that $23 is not enough to cover a week’s worth of food for most people. There are a few things you can do to try to increase your EBT benefits.

First, make sure that you are accurately reporting your income and expenses on your application. If you are not, you may be eligible for more benefits.

Second, you can appeal your EBT benefits if you are not satisfied with the amount you are receiving. To do this, you will need to fill out a written appeal and submit it to the FSSA.

Third, you can contact your local DFR office and ask to speak to someone about your EBT benefits. They may be able to help you understand why you are receiving such a low amount and what you can do to increase your benefits.

Finally, you can also contact a food bank or other social service agency in your area. They may be able to provide you with additional food assistance or help you find other resources to help you meet your basic needs.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
