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.

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.

    Ok…everyone who commented did not receive their EBT…the question is why?

    I shopped for 2 hours this morning at walmart. Called before I went in and heard mt balance. Get to check out and they run my cars 5 times. Called to check it again ,wouldn’t tell me a balance. An hour later I finally got to leave. It went through on walmarts side but not ebts. So whatever it is its an ebt problem. It finally went through and let me hear my balance when I got home. Nothing like an empty pantry, 4 kids, and a cart full of groceries almost being put back.
