VT EBT CardHow It Works

  1. We send you an EBT card.
  2. You select a 4-digit Personal Identification Number (PIN) that you’ll need every time you use your card.
  3. Your benefits are added to your card on the same date each month depending on the program — even if it falls on a weekend or holiday. 
  4. When you use your card to buy goods or get cash, your account balance decreases accordingly.

Where You Can Use It

YQUEST Logoou may use your EBT Card at participating stores, ATMs, farmers’ markets, and anywhere you see the QUEST® logo.

RESTRICTION: You cannot use an ATM or make purchases using your cash benefits at any casino,  gaming establishment, liquor store or strip club. Any benefits used at restricted locations will have to be repaid.
