SNAP Monthly Benefit Issuance Schedule
 

NEW YORK
Benefits are generally made available based on the last digit of the client’s case number. For all counties, except the 5 boroughs of NYC (aka Upstate NY):
 
Case number ends in: 0 or 1 = benefits available on the 1st of the month
Case number ends in: 2        = benefits available on the 2nd of the month
Case number ends in: 3        = benefits available on the 3rd of the month
Case number ends in: 4        = benefits available on the 4th of the month
Case number ends in: 5        = benefits available on the 5th of the month
Case number ends in: 6        = benefits available on the 6th of the month
Case number ends in: 7        = benefits available on the 7th of the month
Case number ends in: 8        = benefits available on the 8th of the month
Case number ends in: 9        = benefits available on the 9th of the month

For NYC cases, benefit postings are spread out over 10 different days that are not Sundays or holidays, during the first two weeks of each month. The actual dates change from one month to the next, so NYC publishes a six-month schedule showing the exact availability dates.

Visit http://www.fns.usda.gov/sites/default/files/NYC_Issuance_Schedule.pdf to see the current schedule. Find the digit in the first column of the schedule. That row lists the monthly deposit dates for your benefits over the six-month period. SNAP deposits are made during the A Cycle of each month.
