Q) 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.
