SNAP EBT Outage, Problems

When there are problems with SNAP EBT such as an outage or website going down people need a platform to report such issues, because this has a massive impact on customers when they need help with the government scheme to supply them with food stamp coupon replacements.

SNAP EBT outage, problems

Is SNAP EBT down for you right now? The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Electronic Benefit Transfer is a great program that replaces food stamp coupons, customers are supplied with a card that allow them to use in stores just like debit or credit card. But when there is an issue customers of this service can report them right here on Is Down Right Now USA.

Seeing as there are no official social media channels this is where you can let us know if you are having problems, a place where you can connect with others. Maybe your SNAP EBT card is not working in store or you have lost one and need a replacement, but having issues getting one due to customer service not being helpful etc, or you could be having problems with your food stamps, balance or benefits. If you are having issues with a store please do mention the store name and location in the comments below.

  • Milee

    Been waiting since yesterday, we have children to feed.. Where is our $hit?

  • Milee

    …aaaand it’s people like you that make things difficult. You’re no better than anyone else. Instead of ridiculing these people that are just trying to feed their young, you should get back to working your “butt off”, since you love being a stooge for uncle Sam so much. If these hardworking people that are trying to feed their families are so stupid for not having a “backup plan”, get off of here, stop hogging OUR benefits, and continue to work your “butt off”. Sit and spin.

  • Lisa Marie Obermann

    What is going on ???? Please Government, don’t say it was the storms because it only effected the wires for EBT and child support cards ?? Come on !!! Bogus !!!! I have kids to feed… one is 14 months old. I’m out of milk, juice, EVERYTHING the baby can eat !!! Funny how this happened AFTER a government shut down. I bet when fixed, we’re all see that somehow some of the money got ” lost ” also ???

  • Natalie Newman

    I am in GA and same issue

  • John D

    I live in Ga and learned the hard way to stock up on rice and ramen noodles. Going several days with no food tends to encourage that. Aug 5th 2017 -AGAIN, ZERO balance at check out ! Call me paranoid and I have no idea the actual motives but i have no doubt it is all pre planned and intentional. I will steal from a large business. before I starve. It is the children and the old folks suffering from it that makes it so disgusting.(and heartbreaking)

  • Natasha Lingo

    Same here… soposed to get them the 7th We are in Illinois with two little girls and a baby nothing and no one will answer.

When I call the card it also says that I’m not even eligible now I know I didn’t miss a certification

    This could be one of those practice runs that they’re doing before it actually happens when everyone is Marched to a FEMA camp. Except for the rich and Elite people and they have no right to play God with people’s lives

  • S. Lindsey

    I have (1) special needs little girl and I’ve also been given (3) others to raise each one under the age of 13 the youngest 18months. I work, I pay almost everything myself bc my husband is disabled and gets a partial Medicare check. I don’t like getting food but I’m taking care of everyone’s children that pay nothing toward them so I needed help, criticism from this site is horrible. The benefits which would only be my second were due today and haven’t loaded and I see there was no deposit of them???

  • Angie

    My link usually comes on the 20th of every month. So without even looking online I spent hours at the store today getting everything we really really needed and was ready to pay. I swiped my card bc I’ve never had issues and it said $0 instead I called and it said the same thing. This is in Illinois and it seems like it is still going on so I am for sure going to dhs in the morning bc I have 2 kids to raise .
