EBT Cards are prepaid debit cards that are usually provided by state governments in the United States of America to be used for Food Stamp recipients. So, let’s say you applied to your state and it was determined that you meet the food stamps eligibility requirements for the program and there for qualify for food stamps. Your state will then issue you a debit card, on which they will regularly pay your food stamp benefits on a monthly basis. This debit card is what is called the Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card. Abuse of the card is a criminal offense. The video below shows how to check information on card:
To check the balance on your EBT card, you have three options available. First, you can call the telephone number displayed at the back of the card. Most debit cards usually have customer service numbers displayed at the back for you to reach customer service. This is also true for the EBT. Once you call the number, you will be asked to enter your card number and perhaps other unique identifiers before you will be able to get the balance information. The second method of finding out how much you have on your card is to go online to a EBT Balance Check Website to get the relevant link to get your information. The third way is to look at your last receipt, which should have the remaining balance on your card.
