FNS (Food Stamp Recipients) - What to Know for April

Scheduled to receive FNS benefits between 4/1-4/11? They will be loaded to your card on your normal day. If you receive benefits between 4/12-4/21, they’ll be loaded on 4/12. This change resulted from the fed. gov’t shutdown. Schedules return to normal in May.

¿Recibe regularmente sus beneficios de FNS entre el 1 y el 14 del mes? Sus beneficios se depositarán en el día acostumbrado. Si recibe sus beneficios entre el 12 y el 21, sus beneficios se depositarán el 12. Los beneficios de Mayo se depositarán normalmente.

ebtEDGE Mobile Application Now Available 

Food and Nutrition Services and Work First recipients can now access account information through a free mobile application called ebtEDGE. The app allows individuals in the FNS and WF programs to use their smartphone to look up real time account balances, deposit/transaction history, benefit schedules, and locate EBT retailers. Recipients are still able to use existing channels, such as calling the EBT Call Center at 1-888-622-7328.

The ebtEDGE application is available through Google Play and iTunes.

A household may consist of an individual person or multiple families living together in one dwelling. Eligibility for food and nutrition assistance is based on income and reserve guidelines.
