SNAP is administered by the Office of Economic Self-Sufficiency (ESS) of the Florida Department of Children and Families and assists those in need access food assistance benefits. SNAP eligibility and benefit levels are determined according to federal guidelines, with a few state-specific variations. To qualify for food assistance, recipients must satisfy a series of eligibility requirements.

Among these are supplying evidence of identity, adhering to work rules (for individuals aged 18 to 50 without dependents or pregnancies), meeting income thresholds, and proving Florida residency. Beneficiaries of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) are mailed a reloadable Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card once they are approved for benefits. This card, which no longer bears an expiration date, is replenished each month with the specified benefit amount. It is accepted at locations displaying the QUEST logo and exhibiting the phrase “EBT Accepted Here.”

It is essential to note that SNAP benefits are distributed between the 1st and 28th of each month, with the exact date determined by the 9th and 8th digits of your Florida case number (read backward) minus the 10th digit. Once per day, benefits are deposited by 6 a.m.
