How It Works

  1. We send you an EBT card.
  2. You select a 4-digit Personal Identification Number (PIN).
  3. Your benefits are added to your card on the same date each month depending on the program — even on weekends and holidays. 
  4. You use your card to buy goods or get cash, and your account balance decreases accordingly.
