Weekend EBT Deposit Dates

If your food stamps are scheduled to be deposited on the weekend, they could be issued to you on Friday before or delayed until the following Monday. This is due to the fact that most government offices, including those related to issuing food stamps, are closed on weekends.

May 2023 Federal Holidays That Could Impact The EBT Deposit Schedule

If You Didn’t Receive Your May 2023 Food Stamps Do This…

Contact the Lone Star Help Desk at 800.777.7328. This is the phone number that SNAP recipients can call to report issues with their EBT account. This includes not receiving your SNAP benefits on time.

This number differs from the 211 Texas Health and Human Services number of 877.541.7905. That number is for individuals who are trying to apply for food stamps. Many clients I work with confuse those two numbers, so  I encourage you to remember the difference if you ever have issues with your EBT account.

When Are Texas Food Stamps Deposited Into My Account?

If you receive SNAP benefits in the state of Texas, your monthly deposits will depend on what is known as the Eligibility Determination Group (EDG), a four-digit number.

The last digit of EDG determines when these food stamps are dispersed every month, starting from the first day and ending with the fifteenth. In the next section, I will provide an easy-to-understand timetable so that you can stay up to date on when to expect your Texas Food Stamps each month.

What Is The Texas Monthly Food Stamp Deposit Schedule?

Using the chart below, you can easily find out when you will receive your Texas SNAP benefits. All you need to do is locate the last digit of your Eligibility Determination Group (EDG) number and check the date to learn when your food stamp deposits will arrive each month.


Last EDG Digit           Day You Receive Food Stamps

0 1st of the month
1 3rd of the month
2 5th of the month
3 6th of the month
4 7th of the month
5 9th of the month
6 11th of the month
7 12th of the month
8 13th of the month
9 15th of the month


Texas will deposit May 2023 food stamp benefits into your EBT account anytime from May 1st to May 15th if you qualify before June 2020.

If you qualified after June 2020, your deposit date could be between May 16th and 28th. 

The date you will receive your food stamps will depend on the last digit of your EDG number.

Memorial Day (May 29th) or any May 2023 EBT deposit dates falling on the weekend are the only dates that may delay SNAP benefits from being deposited into your account on time. 

If you still have questions about when you will receive your May 2023 food stamps, you can call the Lone Star Help Desk at 800.777.7323 for assistance.
