Food stamps: Payment schedule for every state

Millions of Americans have received, or are getting ready to receive, their February food stamps. Some can expect extra due to COVID-19.

They way you receive them, as well as when, depend on your own state’s rules.

While the SNAP program is federally funded, it is run solely by the state providing services.

Many people receive their monthly benefits with an EBT card, but some states have their own card or prepaid debit cards.

States not only determine how a person is paid their benefit but when they are paid the benefit.

This means the payment method and date may be different for some on New York compared to Arizona.

How do I check my February food stamp payment?

Every state has a schedule which you can find by searching Google or contacting your local SNAP office.

SNAP benefits permanently increased under the Biden administration following inflation and the COLA increase.

The average maximum in each state is around $835, except in Alaska and Hawaii where it’s higher.
