What Is EBT?

Sample EBT SNAP card

SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), formerly known as Food Stamps, is a federal program that assists individuals with purchasing the food they require to live a healthy lifestyle. 

Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) is an electronic system that allows SNAP participants to use their benefits to pay for food. Since June of 2004, EBT has been the sole method of SNAP issuance in all states. 

When a participant shops at a SNAP-approved retail store, their SNAP EBT account is debited to reimburse the store for the food they purchased. 

Who Qualifies For An EBT Card? 

You can qualify for an EBT card if you are eligible for the SNAP program.  In order to receive SNAP benefits, you must meet certain requirements, including resource and income limits. 

You are eligible for an EBT card if your income and resources meet the following criteria: 

  • Gross monthly income: Your gross monthly income must be at or below 130% of the poverty line. Please note that the poverty level is higher in larger families and lower in smaller families. 
  • Net income: Your net income or household income must be at or below the poverty line. 
  • Assets: Your assets must fall below certain limits: 
  • Households with a member who is 60 or older or has a disability must have assets of $3,750 or less. 
  • Households without such a member must have assets of $2,500 or less. 

How Can You Get Free Phones With EBT?

If you possess an EBT card or participate in the SNAP program, you can instantly qualify for the Lifeline and Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP).  

The Lifeline and ACP programs are federal assistance programs designed to help low-income households access to phone and internet service. 

However, these programs only provide discounts to lower the cost of monthly phone and internet service, not a free phone. AirTalk Wireless, on the other hand, offers free smartphones at the company’s cost to provide eligible consumers with the complete package to stay connected and enjoy free monthly service.  

Please note that during the application process, you will be required to upload proof documentation to verify your identity, address, and participation in SNAP/Food Stamps or another qualifying government assistance program, if applicable.
