When receiving Rhode Island SNAP benefits you are given a Rhode Island EBT 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 Rhode Island 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 Rhode Island food stamp payment dates below.
Benefits are made available on the first day of every month.
If you believe you do not receive your Rhode Island EBT payment this month and it is past the payment date listed above, then you would need to contact the Rhode Island 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 Rhode Island EBT card balance page.
