When Will You Receive Your June 2024 SNAP Benefits in Texas?

Are you one of the 3.4 million Texans who rely on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) to make ends meet? If so, you may be wondering when you will receive your June 2024 payment from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC).

HHSC distributes SNAP benefits in two groups based on the beneficiary’s entry date. If you were certified after June 1, 2020, you can expect to receive your benefits between the 16th and 28th of the month, depending on the last two digits of your Eligibility Determination Group (EDG) number. On the other hand, if you were certified before that date, your benefits will be available between the 1st and 15th of the month, with the exact date determined by the last digit of your EDG number.

To give you a clearer idea of when you can expect your payment, here is a breakdown of the payment dates based on EDG numbers:

For recipients certified after June 1, 2020:
– EDG # 00-03: Benefits available on the 16th of the month
– EDG # 04-06: Benefits available on the 17th of the month
– EDG # 07-10: Benefits available on the 18th of the month
– And so on…

For households certified before June 1, 2020:
– EDG # 0: Benefits available on the 1st of the month
– EDG # 1: Benefits available on the 3rd of the month
– EDG # 2: Benefits available on the 5th of the month
– And so on…

For more precise information, HHSC recommends checking the notification letter they sent you when you were approved for benefits. Your EDG and exact payment date will be specified in that letter.

SNAP is a vital lifeline for many Texans, and knowing when to expect your benefits can help you better plan your budget and ensure you have access to the food you need. Stay informed and make sure to mark your calendar for your upcoming payment date!
