Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT) Update 6/10/2021

PS-3rd grade on campus learners are not eligible for March, April & May P-EBT funds. All other students PS-12th grade are eligible.

Why:  Lunch was offered daily to all PS-3rd grade onsite students. Receiving a meal served on campus on a school day makes a student ineligible for the P-EBT benefit. Families who already receive SNAP benefits will NOT get a new card. Funds are loaded onto their Ohio Direction card for all eligible students.

Non-SNAP recipients receive(d) a P-EBT card for each qualifying student. Families must keep the P-EBT card!  Card is reloaded monthly. Funds loaded to cards about 2 months later.  

March benefits were distributed the end of May.
April benefits will be paid sometime toward the end of June.
May benefits will be paid sometime toward the end of July.

Summer P-EBT benefits/funds will be issued to all students enrolled on the last day of 2020-2021 school year regardless of virtual or on campus status.  Expect those benefits to be distributed 2 months later (June's near the end of August and so on).

Lost or Misplaced P-EBT Cards

If a family has accidentally thrown away the P-EBT card or has lost the card, the family should call Conduent (the P-EBT card vendor) at 1-866-386-3071 to request a replacement if the card is lost, stolen or damaged. It is the same process SNAP customers do to replace the Ohio Direction EBT card. When the family calls, their old card will be locked, and a new card will be mailed to them. If the family finds their lost card, they will not be able to use it once they have reported it lost or stolen. The family will have to wait to receive the replacement card in the mail, which can take 7-10 days. Additional information to share with families on how to replace a lost or misplaced card is available on the P-EBT website.
