Food Stamps

I was just approved for foodstamps in California. It says our foodstamps started November 1st. But we are still waiting for our card. So will the amount I don't spend from Novemember be added onto Decembers amount?

  • They give you a card at the appointment once you get approved. You have to stick around to get it and set up your pin though.

  • I think typically the front desk staff has the cards on hand and you just ask them for your card and they help you set up the pin number. You should call there in the morning. And yes, Nov will add onto Dec amount.

  • Unused stamps expire in 365 days. So you get to keep them all until a year is up.
