88. When will I get my SNAP benefits?

ALERT:  Many of the rules in the SNAPAdvocacy Guide do NOT apply during the pandemic. Please go to the following COVID-19 & DTA benefits page: https://www.masslegalservices.org/DTA-COVID-19 until further notice for more information about changes.

Your SNAP benefits are put in your EBT account on the same day each month based on the last digit of your Social Security Number.

The last digit of your SSN is also how DTA determines your “SNAP month” (also called your cyclical month) for issuing your first amount of benefits.  Your “SNAP month” runs from the day your benefits are deposited to the day before the next month’s benefits will be issued to you.   

Example: If your SSN ends in 5, your benefits are deposited on the 8th of the month, and your SNAP month is from March 8th through April 7th.
