New Jersey Food Stamp Monthly Payment Schedule

You receive your New Jersey food stamp payment each month on your New Jersey EBT card through the Electronic Benefit Transfer system. The schedule to receive your monthly allotment of food stamps is determined by the states Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. If you have not received your New Jersey SNAP benefits for this month you should first verify the schedule below. If you believe the schedule is correct and you still have not received this month's food stamp payment, then the next step is to contact the customer service phone number at 800-997-3333. You can also try the customer service phone number listed on the back of your New Jersey EBT card.

Benefits are generally made available over the first five calendar days of the month, based on the 7th digit of the client's case number.

Case number ends in: 7 or 8 = benefits available on the 4th of the month
Case number ends in: 9 or 0 = benefits available on the 5th of the month
