If you want to check the balance on your Lone Star Card or Texas EBT card, here are some ways to do so. The Food Stamp Program is supervised by the Texas Department of Health and Human Services.
The Food Stamp Program is also known as Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program(SNAP). It provides certain monthly food assistance benefits to low-income families so that they can purchase nutritious food. The Texas SNAP recipients will receive the benefits through an EBT card.
The food assistance benefits provided to the Texas EBT cardholders will be reflected on the EBT card. After the benefits are deposited on your EBT card, you can buy the food items. There is a list of eligible food items that you can buy. The benefits are deposited on various days of the month depending on the last digit of the EDG number.
How To Check The Texas EBT Card Balance?
There are a few options available to check the EBT card balance.
Check your Last Receipt
The first option is to check by using the last receipt. The current balance can be retrieved quickly and easily. The balance will be displayed at the bottom of your ATM receipt or your recent grocery store receipt. Before shopping, you can quickly look at the available balance.
Check at the Store
Another option is to check the balance at the store before you could purchase the items, but only if the store allows it. You could reach out to a store clerk and request them to check the available balance on your Texas EBT card so that you know the money on your card before shopping.
Check by Phone
The third available option is to check your card balance by calling the EBT Customer Service number on the back of the card ( 1-800-777-7228). Customer service is reachable 24/7. After you dial the number, enter the 16-digit EBT card number to know your current cash account balance or food assistance balance.
Any EBT card lost, damaged, or stolen can be reported at 1-800-777-7328. The card renewal process and any tips on protecting the safety of your EBT card can be done by visiting the Department of Health and Human Services website.
