Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT)Manage Your EBT Card on Your Computer or Cell Phone

Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits are provided through a Virginia Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card (it looks like a credit card). Recipients are able to use the card at stores across the country to pay for food. 

Now, there is an easy and free way to manage your EBT card on your computer or cell phone. Through the ConnectEBT mobile app, you can:

  • Check your available balance anytime, anywhere.
  • Review up to 12 months of transaction history.
  • Confirm your last deposit.
  • Change your PIN.

Learn more and start managing your EBT card on your computer or cell phone.
