Florida’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program will start distributing its December payments, worth up to $1,751, in 10 days.

Food stamps are issued to beneficiaries in Florida from the 1st to the 28th of every month, and recipients usually get their funds on the same day each month. The exact day SNAP benefits are issued depends on the digits of an applicant’s case number.


For instance, beneficiaries whose case number ends with the digits 00 to 03 see their SNAP benefits on the first day of the month. Those with case numbers ending in digits 04 to 06 get their benefits on the second day of the month, those ending with digits 93 to 95 get their payments on the 27th, and those ending with digits 96 to 99 get their money on the 28th.

The exact amount of benefits an eligible household receives depends on multiple factors, including household size and income limits. The maximum payment is $291 for a household of one, $973 for a household of four, and $1,751 for a household of eight. Up to $219 is added to a household’s food stamps for each member after eight.


SNAP benefits are loaded onto an electronic benefits transfer card every month. Recipients can use the card at grocery stores to purchase eligible food products such as fruits, vegetables, bread, meat, poultry, and drinks. They are barred, however, from using SNAP benefits for products such as pet food, alcohol, and household items such as paper and soap.

Around 2.85 million people, or 13% of Florida’s population, receive SNAP benefits in the state, according to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.
