As of April 26, 2019, the Office for Family Independence is no longer offering the option to add a photo to Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) Cards. All EBT cards will continue to be valid and should continue to be accepted, whether they have a photo or not. We will not be replacing cards that currently have photos, unless requested by the card holder. We thank you for your partnership and continued assistance toward reaching our common goals.
SNAP Early Issuance Messaging for Retailers: Customers who use SNAP EBT should keep in mind that February food dollars will be added in the middle of January this year. This means that you may have two months’ worth of food dollars on your account this month. No food dollars will be added in February. The early food dollars are meant to help with next month’s food. We encourage our SNAP-participating customers to plan their purchases carefully so that they have money available to meet their food needs.
