How Do You Check the Status of Your EBT Application?

To check your EBT status, call the EBT customer service number designated for your state, or visit your state’s EBT website, if applicable. The Department of Agriculture Food and Nutrition Service website lists the customer service numbers and website addresses for each state.

Customer service numbers for some states are not toll-free numbers. The review and approval of SNAP applications depends on the state where the application was filed. States have different ways of providing status updates, so applicants should understand their local office’s process for applying as they begin the process. The Food and Nutrition Service department does not field phone calls regarding applications or status updates.
