Understanding SNAP Food Stamps Payments: Dates and Amounts

In the United States, SNAP Food Stamps checks are distributed by each state on different days throughout the month. This means that depending on where you live, you might receive your payment earlier or later than others.

However, what’s interesting is that the amount of the SNAP Food Stamps check doesn’t change based on where you live. In 2024, the maximum payment per person for SNAP Food Stamps is $291, and this amount applies to all states, regardless of your location. So, even though the payment dates may vary, the maximum amount you can receive remains the same no matter where you are.

As we near the end of April, the final payments for the month will soon be sent out to recipients who have EBT cards. If you’re still waiting for your SNAP Food Stamps for April, don’t worry—they should be available in the next few days, regardless of which state you’re in or the amount you’re expecting.

Here’s a list of states that will be sending out their last payments for April:

  • Alabama: April 4 to 23
  • Delaware: April 2 to 23
  • Florida: April 1 to 28
  • Georgia: April 5 to 23
  • Indiana: April 5 to 23
  • Louisiana: April 1 to 23

  • North Carolina: April 3 to 21
  • Puerto Rico: April 4 to April 22
  • Texas: April 1 to 28

If your state isn’t on this list, it means that all SNAP Food Stamps payments for April have already been sent out. To check if your benefit money is available, simply verify your EBT card balance. This is the easiest and most reliable way to see if you can use your benefits at participating stores.
