SNAP Program: Find Out If You Will Receive Benefits of Up to $3,487

In May, food stamps from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) will be deposited starting this Tuesday, the 28th, and will continue through June 1st. While many have already received this aid, some households will get their deposits in the coming days.

SNAP is a social assistance program for low-income individuals or families, providing help to cover their food needs at retail stores, farmers’ markets, and more. States are responsible for distributing these resources to their citizens through the Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card, which beneficiaries use to purchase what they need.

SNAP operates on a monthly payment schedule, specifying the exact days when beneficiaries in each state can collect their benefits. Deposits are made based on various factors such as case number, Social Security number, and the family’s last name.
