Welcome to EBT
For March 2016, food assistance benefits are split into two availability dates. Existing customers will receive about half of their March benefits on their current availability date and the rest of their March benefits on their new availability date. Starting April 2016, many food assistance (SNAP) customers will have their benefits available on a new date. For more information please visit the Frequently Asked Questions and Answers website: www.myflfamilies.com/service-programs/access-florida/snap-benefit-schedule-faqs.
The USDA Food Stamp Program changed its name to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) effective October 2008. In Florida your benefits are deposited into a cash or food assistance (SNAP) account each month.
You access the benefits in your cash or food assistance (SNAP) account using your Florida Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) ACCESS card. It is the way you will receive your cash and food assistance (SNAP) benefits.

Card Expiration & New Card Design
Did you know the EBT card has an expiration date on it? It is the "Good Thru" date on the front of the card, and the card is good through the last day of the month printed on the card.
ACCESS Florida EBT cards will begin expiring April 30, 2015 and new cards will be issued. Please see the current card and the new card below.
If your address has changed since your last Application or Renewal of Benefits, please log into your MyACCESS Account at http://www.myflorida.com/accessflorida/ and Report a Change of address. This will ensure your new card is mailed to your correct address.
Florida EBT cards cannot be used to purchase alcoholic beverages. EBT cards cannot be used at ATM or Point of Sale (POS) machines in bars, liquor stores, adult entertainment establishments, pari-mutual gambling facilities, slot machine facilities, casinos or commercial bingo and gambling facilities.
