EBT Card Balance

It is imperative to regularly check your current EBT card balance on your food stamp benefits card before making purchases. This can help you plan your tasks throughout the month until the next time your state accepts EBT card payments again.


There are several ways to check your card balance, www.ebtedge.com. A quick and easy way is right after your shopping. Look at your sales receipt, and it should show your current EBT card balance. Another option is to call the EBT card balance phone number.
