SNAP benefits, better known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or food stamps, are disbursed once per month.
These benefits help low income families purchase food for their household.
Benefits are loaded onto an EBT card once per month.
When will I get my food stamp SNAP benefits?
The EBT cards are electronic benefit transfer cards.
You can only use these cards to purchase items approved for food stamp use.
Many states choose to use the last numbers of an EBT ID.
Others will use calendar days to send benefits.
If you end up with your payment date being on a weekend or holiday, you’ll see a deposit after that date.
Your specific state will have the rules available through their SNAP offices.
