Oklahoma EBT Card Balance – Phone Number and Login
If you have an Oklahoma EBT Card, there are several ways you can obtain the balance on your card. In this post, we will explain in detail the three ways you can check your Oklahoma EBT Card Balance.
The Oklahoma Department of Human Services (DHS) is responsible for administering Oklahoma Food Stamp benefits. The food stamps program is also referred to as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
SNAP helps households by providing them with healthy, nutritious food to put on the table. Food stamps are available to low-income households that meet the federal income eligibility rules.
If you are approved for Oklahoma Food Stamps, your benefits will be deposited electronically on an Oklahoma ACCESS Card.
The Oklahoma Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) Card, also known as the Oklahoma ACCESS Card is similar to a standard ATM or debit card. Food stamp benefits are deposited on your EBT Card on the same day every month. Benefits can be accessed by 5AM the morning after they are posted to your EBT Card account.
Benefits can be used to make approved food purchases at eligible retail locations. Most Oklahoma grocery stores accept the Oklahoma Food Stamps Card, including farmer’s markets.
Some farmer’s markets even allow you to double your EBT cash, giving you even more for your monthly benefits. Find out what Oklahoma farmer’s markets will double your EBT dollars here.
