Go anon of you feel, but I have friends who live there that are on FS and they are all reporting that their cards will not work and when they call the hotline, it says their cards are deactivated. Anyone else?


Edit: okay so I mentioned it to a few people I know in random states and everyone is checking. So far...MS and Ohio are both down. I don't think it is shut down related as of right now.

EDIT AGAIN: Maryland is down as well. To those saying it isn't true because they just used their cards last night...THIS JUST STARTED TODAY.

If anyone has any other states to add...let me know.

Edit: GA, Maine and PA added to the down list.

Edit: OK is down as well.

Edit: MI and MA are down.

Edit: LA is down too.

Edit: VA is down.

Edit: IL is down too.
I am hearing and reading now that its a system upgrade causing the issues. No idea how long it will be down, but I will try to keep everyone updated.

Same in Mississippi! People are freaking out on Facebook! There are tons of jokes, but there are children who will not be eating, and that is sad.....

not me.... but the last time i used it was a couple days ago.

i did get a letter in the mail stating that it was lowered, but only by $20 and honestly, i barely use the full amount in there. sometimes, i wish they'd listen to the person recieving the money vs how much they automatically get.

It is down in multiple states.

Idc. I'm without a paycheck due to the shutdown and no one gives a shit about my kids.

It went down around noon. The systems are down and its not tied to the shutdown. No worries

Call the line to check your balance. Ohio is out. So is Mississippi.
