Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) is a system which allows a recipient to transfer SNAP benefits from their EBT account
to a food retailer's account to pay for products received. EBT eliminates the extra processes required by the paper
food stamp system, and automates the accounting process.
Benefits are accessed by the use of an EBT card (like a debit or credit card) and a Personal Identification
Number (PIN). Each time the card is used, the benefit account balance is reduced by the amount of the
purchase. If the card is lost or stolen, it can't be used by anyone who does not know the PIN, and it may
easily be canceled and replaced. All SNAP recipients in Nevada receive their benefits using EBT.
It is your responsibility
to protect your benefits. You can help protect your
- Promptly reporting a lost or stolen card, or
- Promptly changing your PIN if someone knows your PIN and you do not want them to use your card.
