When receiving New York SNAP benefits you are given a New York Common Benefit Identification 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 New York 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 New York food stamp payment dates below.
Benefits are generally made available based on the last digit of the client's case number. For all counties, except the 5 boroughs of NYC (aka Upstate NY).
|Case Number Ends With||Benefits Available|
|0-1||1st of the month|
|2||2nd of the month|
|3||3rd of the month|
|4||4th of the month|
|5||5th of the month|
|6||6th of the month|
|7||7th of the month|
|8||8th of the month|
|9||9th of the month|
|For NYC cases, benefit postings are spread out over 10 different days that are not Sundays or holidays, during the first two weeks of each month. The actual dates change from one month to the next, so NYC publishes a six-month schedule showing the exact availability dates.|
If you believe you do not receive your New York EBT payment this month and it is past the payment date listed above, then you would need to contact the New York Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance, 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 New York EBT card balance page.
