Introduction

EBT stands for Electronic Benefit Transfer. If you have an EBT card, it means that you receive some kind of government benefits, such as food stamps, which are now called the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). When you use your EBT card to buy eligible food items at a participating store, the amount of your purchase is deducted from your food stamp balance.

Your EBT card is also a debit card, which means that you can use it to withdraw cash from your food stamp account. You can do this by going to a participating ATM or by asking the cashier at a participating store to do a cash back transaction. (There may be a charge for this service.)

Whenever you use your EBT card, you will receive a receipt showing the date, the amount of the transaction, and the balance in your account. It is important to save these receipts so that you can keep track of your account balance and ensure that you do not overspend.
