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 (Sept. 1, 2023) to submit a retroactive claim. Report theft within 30 calendar days of discovering and submit regular claim form within 10 more calendar days. Report theft or submit claims by phone, online, email, mail, or in-person at local offices. The state has 10 calendar days after reported loss, or two business days after claim submission (whichever is later) to validate the claim.
