The month of April has begun, and many families are expecting their fourth SNAP benefit check of the calendar year.
The Supplemental Nutrition Aid Program (SNAP), sometimes known as the Food Stamp Program, is the largest federal nutrition assistance program in the world.
SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) provides food-purchasing assistance to low-income individuals and families who qualify.
Benefits are normally disbursed through the use of an electronic benefits transfer (EBT) card, but other states may refer to this scheme by a different acronym.
State agencies are in charge of overseeing the program’s administration and ensuring that it operates in an ethical manner.
Individuals and households are determined to be eligible for SNAP benefits by the states, which subsequently make monthly SNAP benefit payments to such individuals and households.
SNAP payment schedules are set up by individual states, which are also liable for them. Most states distribute payments in accordance with the identification numbers assigned to their programs, however some states may distribute all SNAP benefits on a single day of the month in order to streamline administration.
Depending on your case number and the final two numbers, New Hampshire pays benefits on the 5th of every month, but Alabama pays benefits on the 4th of every month and Alabama pays benefits on the 23rd of every month.
To find out when your SNAP benefits will be paid, you’ll need to go to the website of the SNAP program/provider that serves your state or territory.
Simply enter the names of your state and SNAP into your search engine, and you should be directed to the website of the agency that handles your benefits.

You may also check your EBT food stamp balance and learn more about SNAP EBT in your state by visiting Providers, a website (and mobile app) that provides information about EBT food stamps.
Visit the Providers website and select your own state from the “EBT in My State” dropdown menu under the “EBT in My State” heading.
You can then view the deposit schedule for your particular state from that page. Payments may be made at any time during the month; however, most jurisdictions do not issue benefits on holidays.
