#07-22-OPE: EBT Same-Day Benefit Issuance
This Policy Directive Replaces PD #06-34-OPE and PB #07-63-SYS)

The instructions in this policy directive are for all Job Center and Non-Public Assistance (NPA) Food Stamp (FS) Office staff. This policy directive has been revised to inform staff that, effective June 4, 2007, the last transmission time for same-day expedited benefits has been changed from 7:30 PM to 8:00 PM.

Same-day benefits can be provided at the time of application. Benefits issued to address a no-food situation must be made available in an expedited manner.

To ensure that benefits to meet an immediate need are available in an expedited manner, a program was implemented by the Family Independence Administration (FIA) that allows the same-day issuance of an immediate needs and/or Food Stamp (FS) grant through the Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) system.
