Fell on hard times and had to apply for FS

Does anyone know what time the money post to your EBT card?

I am receiving mine tomorrow and I was wondering do they post at midnight, or is it later in the morning?

Posting Anon, because too many ladies here are nasty to people who need help

  • It may be different in every state. Don't feel bad. When we decided to stop sending our 8 month old to daycare and me be a SAHM because I was working just to send him....we qualified for WIC. Not FS though. And I think of it this way, I have been paying into Social Security since 14. Since finishing college always had a full time AND a part time are just getting what you are entitled to. Don't be ashamed. I have had to go to food banksa couple times, sucks first time, but you have to eat. Things will get better, they eventually did for us by far!!

  • I live in KY, and I know that about a year ago, they posted at midnight. But then one day I was doing my midnight shopping, and I didn't get my food stamps until 7 am. Your best bet would be to just wait until the morning to shop. I was so embarrassed, I had to put up a full cart of groceries.

  • At midnight. But call the number on the back of your card to make sure. You can also check your balance that way.

  • Honey, don't feel bad, only a simple person would try to knock a person down,when,they are already down. I hope things look up for you in the near future. I don't know much about the fs card, the above posts gave you some good answers.

  • I just applied for them last week. Every body needs help sometime. People that are nasty about it have no respect for others. but anon :58 has the right idea.
