Every year, millions of Americans rely on food stamps, often known as SNAP assistance. What happens to balances at the end of the year?
- If you have a balance at the end of the month, it will carry over to the following month.
- If you haven’t used your food stamps in 9 months, they will be taken from your EBT card.
- If you have benefits left over at the end of December 2022, they will be credited to your account in January 2023.
