For Immediate Release: April 1, 2015
New Florida EBT Cards Sent to Customers
Cards begin to expire at the end of April, replacement cards have updated design
TALLAHASSEE – Florida ACCESS EBT (Electronic Benefit Transfer) cards will begin expiring April 30 and replacement cards with a new design will be mailed to those receiving benefits. The “Good Thru” date printed on the front of the card indicates when the card is no longer valid – the last day of the month presented. Recipients should expect replacement cards to arrive by the 20th of the month that the card is scheduled to expire.
New EBT cards are activated prior to mailing and are ready for use as soon as they are received. After completing a transaction with a new card, former cards will automatically deactivate and can then be disposed of. Existing PIN numbers will remain the same.
Customers who’ve had a change of address since the last application or renewal of benefits was received should log into their MyACCESS Account at www.myflorida.com/accessflorida and report a change of address. This will ensure the new card is mailed to the correct address.
