TEXAS APPROVED! | HOW To Check Your $95 Emergency SNAP Food Stamps Payment for February 2022!

First of all, states have different methods of transferring SNAP benefits to eligible recipients. For example, some states use the EBT card, other states customized the card with the name of the person on it, and the rest use prepaid debit cards. Each state is responsible for the delivery dates and schedules granted by the SNAP benefits. So how do you check your February payment date and amount? Each state has their own unique benefits information and deposit schedules. To get the most accurate information, go to Google or your main search engine and type your state, plus "SNAP", click on the official SNAP-related link for your state, which will typically show up as a “.gov” website and from there, you’ll find information like eligibility, how to apply, payment dates, and so forth. SNAP benefits increased in 2022 in large part due to the COLA increase.


Many states have also extended the maximum allowable emergency allotments for SNAP benefits. According to the USDA, families of four will have a maximum allotment of $835 in the 48 states, plus Washington DC. However, a family of four in Alaska increased its maximum amount by more than $500 from $1,074 to $1667. Hawaii's family of four will receive a total of $1,573; in Guam, a family of four will have $1,231 in total SNAP benefits. Now as I mentioned in a previous video, we currently have a total of 18 states currently participating in the February SNAP benefit disbursement. Again, each with their own set of rules and dates.


For example, Texas is one of the participating states that has agreed to extend SNAP. According to Governor Greg Abbott, the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (or HHSC) will provide more than $326 million in emergency SNAP food benefits for the month of February. The HHSC also received federal approval from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to extend the maximum allowable amount of SNAP benefits to recipients based on family size. All SNAP households will receive a minimum of $95 in emergency allotments that should appear in recipients’ accounts by February 28th.
