    P-EBT Benefit information

    Use Your P-EBT Food Benefits 


    What is P-EBT? 

    P-BET stands for Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer. It is a program to help purchase food for your child(ren) who normally would get free or reduced-price meals at school before closures. The full benefit amount of $416.10, which covers the days schools were closed due to COVID-19, will be available when you activate your card. You can use P-EBT benefits to purchase food items. You cannot, however, purchase prepared foods, such a rotisserie chicken or hot meal. Similar to a bank card, which is protected with a Personal Identification Number (PIN), you will use an EBT card to get P-EBT benefits. If your school offers grab-and-go lunch, you still can pick up a lunch and use your P-EBT benefit to buy food. 


    Do I need to apply for P-EBT? 

    No. An application is not necessary to receive this benefit. The Department of Human Services is working with schools to identify students who were receiving free or reduced-price school meals as of March 18, 2020. 


    How do I get my P-EBT benefits? 

    If your household already receives SNAP benefits, your P-EBT benefits will be added automatically to your Families First EBT card. If your household does not receive SNAP benefits, an EBT card will be mailed to your house and your benefits will be available when you activate your card. As long as you use some portion of your benefit each month, the benefits will not expire. 


    When will I get my P-EBT benefits? 

    P-EBT benefits will be issued in June, but an exact date is not known at this time. Your one-time benefit will be available when you receive and activate your card.
