WAC 388-412-0020

When do I get my benefits?

(1) If you get your cash benefits on an electronic benefits card (EBT), you get your cash benefits deposited on the first of each month.
(2) If you get your cash benefits deposited directly to your bank account by electronic funds transfer (EFT), your money is deposited on the first working day of the month. When the first of the month is a federal holiday or a Sunday, the benefits are deposited the following day.
(3) If you get basic food, your benefits are issued by the twentieth day of each month. Our eligibility system automatically assigns the day you get your benefits when we approve your basic food. We tell you the date you will get your monthly benefits on your approval letter.
