About EBT

EBT cardholders can benefit at the point of sale (POS) terminals or retailers authorized by USDA to accept food stamp benefits. In California, many counties (including Solano) are also providing beneficiaries with the ability to access cash benefits through automated teller machines (ATMs) and cash benefits at POS.

HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR EBT CARD

DO NOT keep your Social Security number with your EBT card.
DO NOT keep your card and PIN together.
DO NOT damage or bend your card.
DO NOT write on or scratch the black stripe on the back of your card.
DO NOT get your card wet.
DO NOT put your card near magnets, TVs, DVD players, CD players, stereos, VCRs or telephones.
DO NOT leave your card in the sun, like on the dashboard of a car, because it will curl up and not work.
DO NOT keep your card out in the open - always put your card in a safe place after using it.
DO NOT throw your card away - you will use the same card every month as long as you receive benefits.
