When do we get our foodstamps?

Dh and I have an appointment today. If we are approved, when can we begin using them? Does it vary by state? I live in Oregon. If you need more info to answer, ask.

  • I haven't ever been on them, so I'm not really sure. I wouldn't think it would be long before you get them though.

  • your appt is today? you'll know soon enough! all we can do is guess..... as long as ALL your paperwork is in order and your worker isn't a total witch it should move quickly. if he/she suggests visiting a food bank in the meantime, expect delay.

  • I live in MN. I was approved and as soon as the letter came, lets say 4/15, Iwent to the county that day and loaded my card. They prorated it and gave me all of Aprils benifites.

  • So they approved you and your husband for food stamps, not to be nosy but did you tell them you were married? The reason I asked is because I want some.
