New to this so I might sound stupid for asking...

When applying for food benefits and they say your account is active, does that mean they mailed out the benefits already or will they call to have me come in?

  • I tried finding out through the DSHS website but I can't log in for some reason.

  • I would call them just to make sure instead of ask people on here. No one can tell you this answer besides the benefits office.

  • In my experience, they will have you come in for a final "screening" of sorts, and then give you your first benefits in person. I am not sure if that's true everywhere, though? :-/ GL!

  • If it's active, then that means you will have money coming to you. If it is not active, or inactive, you'd have to go back in there & try to reactivate it by maybe having to reapply or by filling out a few forms. So, you should be good. You should have a check coming your way.
