Replacement of Stolen Benefits
Contact your state agency to report stolen SNAP benefits.
Households have 30 calendar days after the state has started their plan (May 30, 2023) to submit a retroactive claim. Submit regular claims within 30 calendar days of discovering theft. Report theft by phone or in-person at local offices. Submit claims by mail, fax, online, or in-person at local offices. The state has 10 calendar days to validate the claim.
Benefit Availability: Benefits for approved claims are issued using the same procedures currently used for issuing replacement benefits due to loss or misfortune. You must either re-PIN or replace your card. We encourage you to replace your card.
