Electronic Benefits Transfer EBT Card Rockville
Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT), is the distribution of cash and food stamp benefits with a plastic debit card called an Independence Card. Customers should call the Customer Service Center to request card activation, replacement cards, select or change a PIN, report a lost or stolen card, obtain balance or transaction information, dispute a transaction or to get help using the card. The telephone number is: 1-800-997-2222. Customers can check account balances online at URL 2 listed below. New cards and replacement cards are sent through the U. S. Mail. If a newly opened case is known to EBT, a card will not be automatically sent. The card will be issued through the office where the application was initiated. Training on how to use the card is conducted through the office that issued the card. Training is conducted from 9:30 -11:00 daily, at each office. If a customer has a card, they can begin using it again. If the customer had a card in the past but no longer has it, they need to call the Customer Service Center for a replacement. Please check the second URL for zip codes served by the Rockville Office.
