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, 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 tenth day of each month.  The day you get your benefits is the same as the last number of your Assistance Unit (AU) number for Basic Food.  If the last number of your AU number is zero, you get your benefits on the tenth.
