Food Stamps are now SNAP benefits, but their aim is the same. To fight food insecurity and help American citizens eat healthier food. Even if it is a Federal program and the United States Department of Agriculture funds it, States Administer it.
Florida is not an exception and they send monthly Food Stamps from the first day of December through December 28, 2023. While some States arrange payment using the client’s Social Security Number or last name, Florida uses the case number.
Therefore, it is of vital importance that you have your SNAP card with you. In this way, you will be able to check when your Food Stamps arrive either this week or the next one.

WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS TO COLLECT SNAP BENEFITS IN FLORIDA?
The first requirement to get SNAP benefits is to be a resident of this State. If you do not live there, you must apply for Food Stamps in the State where you live. Able-Bodied Adults Without Dependents must also meet additional work requirements.
They must work for 80 hour per month to get Food Stamps for more than 3 months in a 3-year period. What is more, you will have to meet both income and resources limits.
Some people receiving benefits like SSI (Supplemental Security Income) or TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) may qualify for SNAP without much paperwork.
