Foodstamp question--ppl only respond if they have foodstamps

My letter in the mail said I was supposed to receive food stamps the first of this month because I am on maternity leave and neither of us are working. Anyway went to check the balance at 12 at night on the first and nothing yet... I didn't check again today though but it is supposed to be at midnight usually... any one else had this problem? Can't call until tomorrow though if it doesn't show up at all today.

  • IDK what state you are in but in Michigan if it's not on by midnight than something is wrong. Call first thing in the morning and be persistant.

    Also in Michigan it goes by the last number of your case number as to when you get the food money on the card, even if the letter says 8/1/10 - Ongoing. Like mine don't go on until the 9th, but that's for 8/1/10- Ongoing. So maybe that's the problem.

    Good Luck, hon. If you have any questions just PM and I'll answer the best I can.

  • it means your eligibility begins on the 1st of the month...you dont actually get your money until midnight the day of the last digit of the main social security number on the case...for example, the last digit of my social (main one on the case) is 9 and i get my money placed on my card at midnight on the 9th of each month

  • It took 30 days before I recieved mine. In Wisconsin it depends on the last 2 digits of your ss#. I recieve food stamps on the 2nd of each month.
