Food stamps: payment schedule for each state

Millions of Americans have received or are about to receive their February food stamps. Some may expect an additional charge due to COVID-19.

How and when you receive them depends on your own state’s rules.

Although the SNAP program is funded by the federal government, it is run solely by the state providing the services.

Many people receive their monthly benefits with an EBT card, but some states have their own card or prepaid debit cards.

States determine not only how a person receives their benefit, but also when they receive it.

This means that the method and date of payment may be different for some in New York compared to Arizona.

Food stamps: income limits for SNAP benefits

How do I check my February food stamp payment?

Each state has a schedule that you can find by searching Google or contacting your local SNAP office.

SNAP benefits have increased permanently under the Biden administration as a result of inflation and increased COLA.

The average maximum in each state is around $835, except in Alaska and Hawaii where it is higher.
