Food Stamp Cards Set to Expire – AGED Newsletter May, 2015

Did you know that the food stamp EBT cards issued by DCF have an expiration date? Starting April 30, 2015 EBT cards will begin expiring, and new cards will be issued.

To tell when your card is set to expire, look at the Good Thru date on the front of the card. Your new card will be mailed automatically at the beginning of the expiration month. So, if your card expires in May, a new card should be sent to you automatically during the beginning of the month.

In order to receive the card, you should make sure that DCF has your correct address on file.

One way to tell which address DCF has is to review your most recent Notice of Case Action. If the address is correct, you are probably okay, but if it is outdated, you should update your address with DCF by logging into your MyAccess Account online at www.myflorida.com/accessflorida and Reporting a Change.

The new cards have an updated look, so it will be easy to tell which card is which. Your pin number will remain the same, so you can begin using the new card as soon as you receive it in the mail. Once you receive your new card, and verify that it is working properly, you may discard your old card.

If you receive food stamps, you’ll want to pay attention to your expiration date, so that you know when to expect your updated card. If for any reason you have an issue with your new card, or if you don’t receive it even if you have a good address on file with DCF, you may call 888-356-3281 to order a new card.

Tip: this number also works for lost / stolen cards, and cards that have never been received. You will be prompted to enter your card number during the call. If you do not know your number, stay on the line and you will be given additional prompts with options for requesting your card.
