What time are food stamps deposited?

Food Stamps deposited times vary by state, but the vast majority are deposited into your account at midnight of the day your payment is scheduled to arrive.

For example, if your payment is scheduled to arrive on the 5th of the month, payments are deposited at midnight on the 4th. You should see the benefits in your account by the morning of the 5th.

The exceptions are weekends and holidays. Whether benefits are deposited on weekends or holidays depends on your state.

If you do not see the benefits deposited into your account by noon of the scheduled date (weekday), then your benefits have stopped. Keep reading below to find out possible reasons why your benefits have been discontinued and what you should do.

Why Your Food Stamps Did Not Arrive and What You Should Do

If your food stamps did not arrive, there may be several reasons why. Here are the most common:

1. You missed a midpoint assessment or a recertification.

2. You are an able-bodied adult without dependents and have reached the 3 month limit for food stamps for ABAWDs and your state has not granted you a waiver or exception so you cannot continue to receive food stamps unless you meet the work requirements.

3. Your income or resources have increased to the level where you no longer meet the eligibility requirements for benefits.

4. You have misused or abused your food stamps benefits or committed food stamps fraud and have been reported to your state agency. They will only cut your benefits if they have investigated the matter and found that you are guilty of the charge.

5. There is a federal government shutdown. Funding for the food stamps program is allocated by Congress each year. If there is a federal government shutdown during the time when the food stamps budget is set to run out, there may be disruptions to benefits.

If you did not receive your food stamps as scheduled, your next step would be to call your caseworker or your local food stamps office.

Be sure to have your case number available when you call. The best time to call is the first thing in the morning when the offices are set to open.
