Virginia Department Social Services has confirmed that benefits will be available to participants 1/17/19. They are asking that all SNAP retailers encourage SNAP participants to plan their spending as the benefits must last through Feb.

Department of Social Services welcomes retailer support in communicating this to their customers: 


February SNAP Was Delivered Early!  Customers who use SNAP EBT should keep in mind that February food dollars will be added in the middle of January this year.  This means that you may have two months’ worth of food dollars on your account this month. No food dollars will be added in February.  The early food dollars are meant to help with next month’s food.  We encourage our SNAP-participating customers to plan their purchases carefully so that they have money available to meet their food needs.


Attached is a press release from VDSS that was released yesterday with more information.  

We will keep you posted as we hear more.
