Georgia SNAP Benefits Alert: February Benefits Worth Up to $1,751 to End in 11 Days

524

Georgia is nearing the end of distributing February’s SNAP benefits to qualifying low-income residents, expected to finish within the next 11 days.

The distribution of SNAP benefits in the Peach State occurs between February 5th and 23rd. Payments are issued to recipients’ accounts based on the last two digits of their client ID, with individuals having IDs ending in 90-99 slated to receive their benefits on February 23rd.

The level of aid offered by the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is contingent upon a multitude of factors, such as the number of individuals in the household, the total income earned, and the assets owned by the household.

For instance, households of one can receive up to $291, while larger households can receive a maximum of $1,751 for eight members, with an additional $219 added for each additional member beyond eight.

Recipients of SNAP benefits in Georgia can utilize their assistance at participating grocery or convenience stores through an electronic benefit transfer (EBT) card, functioning similarly to a debit card.
