My purse with my EBT card was stolen…

Q) My purse with my ebt card was stolen , I’ve called and cancelled already. I was hoping I could get a emergency card until i receive my new one ? I have no water bread milk . Can I go to a local office and get one ?

A) I am sorry to hear that your EBT card was stolen. You can go to your local office and request an emergency card. You will need to provide proof of identity and residency, as well as the cancellation confirmation number from when you reported your card stolen. The emergency card will have the same benefits as your regular card, but it will only be valid for a certain period of time, usually 30 days.

Here are the steps on how to get an emergency EBT card:

  1. Contact your local EBT office. You can find the contact information for your local EBT office on the USDA website.
  2. Explain that your EBT card was stolen. The representative will ask you for some information, such as your name, date of birth, and Social Security number.
  3. Provide proof of identity and residency. This can include a driver’s license, birth certificate, or utility bill.
  4. Provide the cancellation confirmation number. This is the number that you received when you reported your card stolen.
  5. Wait for your emergency EBT card. The representative will tell you how long it will take to receive your emergency EBT card.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

NOTE: If your EBT Card is lost, stolen, or damaged call your state EBT Card Customer Service phone number ASAP and Let them know that you would like to request a replacement EBT Card. You did a good job by calling them immediately to make sure that no one is able to use your card while you wait for a replacement EBT card.
