When receiving New Jersey SNAP benefits you are given a New Jersey SNAP Card. Each month your EBT card is refilled through the Electronic Benefits Transfer system with the amount you were approved for when you applied for New Jersey food stamps. It is important to know when your card gets refilled each month, so that you can better plan your food stamp purchases at stores that are authorized SNAP retailers. To find out when you will receive your next SNAP payment, look at the New Jersey food stamp payment dates below.
Benefits are generally made available over the first five calendar days of the month, based on the 7th digit of the client's case number.
|Case Number Ends With||Benefits Available|
|1-2||1st of the month|
|3-4||2nd of the month|
|5-6||3rd of the month|
|7-8||4th of the month|
|9-0||5th of the month|
|Exceptions: In Warren County, all benefits are made available on the 1st of the month|
If you believe you do not receive your New Jersey EBT payment this month and it is past the payment date listed above, then you would need to contact the New Jersey Department Of Human Services, who head up the SNAP program. You can try the phone number on the back of your EBT card, or you can get the contact information on the New Jersey EBT card balance page.
