Recipients of benefits from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program are set to receive a new payment throughout June.

Recipients usually see their SNAP benefits reloaded on the same day each month, with the date depending upon a recipient’s Social Security number, last name, case number, or account number.

FOOD STAMPS: HOW MUCH SNAP RECIPIENTS RECEIVE BY STATE

The first four states that start reloading SNAP benefits each month are Vermont, Rhode Island, North Dakota, and Alaska. Low-income households receiving food stamps in those four states should have received their payment on Thursday.

Below is the SNAP benefits reloading schedule for Washington, D.C., and all 50 states:

Alabama: June 4-23 Alaska: June 1 Arizona: June 1-13 Arkansas: June 4-13 California: June 1-10 Colorado: June 1-10 Connecticut: June 1-3 Delaware: June 2-23 District of Columbia: June 1-10 Florida: June 1-28 Georgia: June 5-23 Hawaii: June 3-5 Idaho: June 1-10 Illinois: June 1-10 and older cases June 1-20 Indiana: June 5-23 Iowa: June 1-10 Kansas: June 1-10 Kentucky: June 1-19 Louisiana: June 1-23 Maine: June 10-14 Maryland: June 4-23 Massachusetts: June 1-14 Michigan: June 3-21 Minnesota: June 4-13 Mississippi: June 4-21 Missouri: June 1-22 Montana: June 2-6 Nebraska: June 1-5 Nevada: June 1-10 New Hampshire: June 5 New Jersey: June 1-5 New Mexico: June 1-20 New York: June 1-9 North Carolina: June 3-21 North Dakota: June 1 Ohio: June 2-20 Oklahoma: June 1-10 Oregon: June 1-9 Pennsylvania: June 3-14 Rhode Island: June 1 South Carolina: June 1-10 South Dakota: June 10 Tennessee: June 1-20 Texas: June 1-28 Utah: June 5, 11, and 15 Vermont: June 1 Virginia: June 1-7 Washington: June 1-20 West Virginia: June 1-9 Wisconsin: June 1-15 Wyoming: June 1-4

Those who applied and were approved for SNAP benefits will see the amount transferred to a prepaid electronic benefit transfer card. The EBT card works like a debit card that can be used at grocery stores and farmer’s markets or at some retailers online, and the money is intended for purchasing healthy foods.

The number of recipients across all states will vary. Typically, states with bigger populations or states with higher poverty rates see a larger amount of SNAP recipients.

SNAP benefits are calculated based on household income and size. The recipient’s household income generally must be at or below 130% of the poverty line. In fiscal 2023, the poverty line used to calculate SNAP benefits is $1,920 a month.

An average monthly SNAP benefit for a household of three is $577, with a maximum of $740. An average payment for a household of eight is $1,150, with a maximum of $1,691. Any household higher than eight can be calculated by adding a maximum of $211 per additional person.
