Q) I renewed my Food Stamp benefits I know you have thirty day’s I was just wondering if I needed to do a phone interview I’ve tried calling the 866-762-2237 but it always says all of our representatives are busy please try your call again later and I do but the same thing happens
A) The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as Food Stamps, is administered by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) through state agencies. If you recently renewed your SNAP benefits, it’s possible that you’re required to complete a phone interview as part of the renewal process.
If you’re unable to get through to the SNAP office when you call the number you provided (866-762-2237), you may want to try calling during a different time of day when there may be fewer people trying to reach the office. You could also try reaching out to the office through other available channels, such as email or an online portal, if one is available.
If you’re still unable to get through to the office after trying multiple times, you may want to consider visiting a local SNAP office in person to request assistance with the phone interview.
It’s important to complete the phone interview within the 30-day timeframe in order to avoid a delay in receiving your benefits. If you’re unable to complete the interview, be sure to reach out to the SNAP office as soon as possible to request assistance.
