The Missouri Department of Social Services says Missouri families that receive SNAP with an eligible child under age six will automatically get a one time Summer Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer, or P-EBT benefit of $375 for that child added to the household’s current EBT card. Half of the eligible Missouri SNAP families received the benefit. The remaining SNAP households with a child under age 6 will get that Summer P-EBT benefit this Friday.
Applications for P-EBT are still being processed. All submitted P-EBT applications received or postmarked by August 20, 2021, including all denied applications, will be automatically be reviewed for eligibility for a Summer P-EBT benefit. Families do not need to take any action for their child to be considered for the Summer P-EBT benefit. Children who are eligible for Summer P-EBT will be issued a one-time benefit of $375.
