South Carolina issuing February SNAP benefits early

January 16, 2019

Columbia, SC – The South Carolina Department of Social Services (DSS) will be issuing
February Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits early as a result of the
federal government shutdown.


SNAP recipients who received a benefit in January and are eligible for ongoing benefits in
February will have their February benefits available on their EBT card Jan. 17, 2019. This will
affect an estimated 231,000 households.


This is not a bonus payment. SNAP recipients will not receive another benefit in February, even
if the federal government reopens. Households are strongly encouraged to carefully plan and
budget their benefits accordingly.


DSS has been instructed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to continue to accept
and process new applications and recertifications as normal. The majority of recipients whose
SNAP benefits are due for recertification this month will not be included in the January 17th
issuance. Any SNAP recipient whose recertification is approved after January 16th will receive
their February benefits on their normal monthly issuance date in February. All program rules,
including verification of income, are not waived because of this early issuance process.

If SNAP participants have questions, they can contact their local office or call DSS Connect at
1-800-616-1309.
