When will my SNAP benefits be available on my EBT card?

unemployed_questionQ) When will my SNAP benefits be available on my EBT card?

A) If you have just been certified to receive SNAP benefits, your benefits should be in your EBT account within 30 days from the date you filed your application. If you qualified for expedited benefits because your income was very low, your benefits should be in the account within 7 days from the date you filed the application. You will need to contact your caseworker to find out the exact day your benefits will be available.




Once you are certified and have received your first allotment, SNAP benefits will be made available to you on a monthly basis. You may also need to contact your local human services office where you applied for SNAP benefits to speak to your case worker to inquire about the availability of your benefits.

I’m unsure why this office is even still open and how these people get paid for refusing to help anyone they are some of the rudest people ive ever delt with their answer to everything is normally “i have no idea what youre talking about” or just a rude “i dont know”!! I always thought the computer in the front office is their for u to go in and do your snap application online if u dont have access to one of your own and also thought they was in the office just incase you arent fimilar with computers ect… ooooh no dont ask these ladies for any help they make u feel stupid they indirectly tell u to pretty much figure it out!! im lucky bc i have lots of knowledge with computers but ive been in that office and witnessed on more than 1 occasion how they speak to certain types of ppl, they need to understand that majority of us hate that we need gov assistance so we drop our pride bc we dont have any other choice then to go in their & get talked to like bc youre applying and or getting assistance that you’re lower of a human than they are!! i started helping ppl in my community apply online bc i hate seeing anyone get treated the way ive witnessed its so sad!!i went one day just to ask for a paper application & they lady told me with a mouth full of potato chips they dont have paper applications but i think what she didnt have was the ability to move to get it bc how dare i interupt her daily snack time!!!!
