When receiving Arkansas SNAP benefits you are given a Arkansas Benefit Security Card. Each month your EBT card is refilled through the Electronic Benefits Transfer system with the amount you were approved for when you applied for Arkansas food stamps. It is important to know when your card gets refilled each month, so that you can better plan your food stamp purchases at stores that are authorized SNAP retailers. To find out when you will receive your next SNAP payment, look at the Arkansas food stamp payment dates below.
Benefits are made available over 8 days, between the 4th and the 13th of every month, based on the last digit of the client's Social Security Number.
|SSN Ending Number||Benefits Available|
|0 or 1||4th of the month|
|2 or 3||5th of the month|
|4||8th of the month|
|5||9th of the month|
|6||10th of the month|
|7||11th of the month|
|8||12th of the month|
|9||13th of the month|
If you believe you do not receive your Arkansas EBT payment this month and it is past the payment date listed above, then you would need to contact the Arkansas Department of Human Services, who head up the SNAP program. You can try the phone number on the back of your EBT card, or you can get the contact information on the Arkansas EBT card balance page.
