When is food stamps deposited?
Food stamps, now known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), helps low-income families afford groceries. Families receiving SNAP benefits can use an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card, which is like a debit card, to purchase food from participating retailers.
Most states issue SNAP benefits on a staggered schedule throughout the month, with some states issuing benefits on specific days of the month, and others issuing benefits based on the last digit of the recipient’s Social Security number. However, some states offer flexibility in how and when benefits are received.
For example, Missouri offers two options for SNAP recipients: they can choose to receive their benefits on either the 1st or the 15th of each month. In Ohio, food stamp benefits are deposited on the 4th Wednesday of every month; if the 4th Wednesday falls on a holiday, then benefits are deposited on the next business day.
Some states also offer a “bridge” EBT option for families who need immediate assistance with food costs; this option provides a one-time deposit of SNAP benefits between regularly scheduled deposits. Missouri’s bridge EBT program provides up to $100 in SNAP benefits to eligible families between their regular monthly deposits.
