FSSA will distribute March SNAP benefits using a split schedule

INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) today announced the agency will split March benefit payments to eligible Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) clients. Recipients will see half of their March benefit amount added to their Hoosier Works cards on Feb. 22 and the other half on their regularly scheduled March date, according to an alphabetical schedule. They do not need to take any action. 

Indiana issued February benefits early on Jan. 16, 2019, due to the partial federal government shutdown that occurred earlier this year. The one-time benefit deposit schedule being used for March benefits will help reduce the gap in benefit payments to eligible SNAP clients that could otherwise be 60 days or more.
