Replacement of Stolen Benefits
Contact your state agency to report stolen SNAP benefits.
Households have 90 calendar days after the state plan is approved (Aug. 10, 2023) to submit a retroactive claim. Submit regular claims within 30 calendar days of discovering theft. Submit reports and claims by mail, email, fax, phone, online, or in-person at local offices. The state has 1-10 calendar days and an additional 1-5 business days to validate the claim.
Benefit Availability: Benefits for approved claims are issued in the same manner as other SNAP replacements. You must replace your card.
