Latest P-EBT Payment

Many families may mistakenly believe they did not receive benefits, but the benefits are on a card they’ve lost or misplaced. In that case, they must order a new card through FSSA. Due to volume, replacement cards may take as long as 2.5 weeks to arrive so please advise patience with families ordering replacements.
