What Is a Benefit Identification Card in New York State?

Individuals and families that receive cash or food assistance under the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program are issued a New York State benefit identity card by the Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance. An electronic benefits transfer card is the name of the card (EBT).

An EBT card can be used to get cash from ATMs and points of service, as well as to buy food from approved vendors including farmers markets. When using an EBT card, some retailers will give you cash back when you make a purchase. The OTDA website includes a list of approved businesses and farmers markets throughout the state, as well as a list of ATMs and point-of-service sites where the EBT card can be used to get cash.

Individuals can check to determine if they qualify for benefits or check the progress of their application on a website that is independent from the OTDA site. SNAP, health programmes, home energy assistance, temporary aid, WIC, and a range of other benefits for the elderly can all be applied for on that site. Those who have been issued an EBT card can check their EBT card balance and transaction history on the same page.
