When you receive your February 2023 Texas food stamps will depend on the last digit of your Texas EDG number. You’ll want to use the chart below to find the last digit of your EDG number and then look at the date.
|0||Wednesday, February 1st|

Please keep in mind that this is a tentative date that Texas Health and Human Services plans to issue your food stamps. They try their best to get your food stamps to you on time, but they could be delayed…
Or you could get them sooner, which is always a good thing!
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 they may be 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.
February 2023 Federal Holidays That Could Impact The EBT Deposit Schedule
The only federal holiday in February is Presidents Day, which will fall on Monday, February 20, 2023. As a result of this holiday, food stamps may be delayed. If your normal EBT deposit date falls on or around February 20th, please keep this in mind and plan accordingly.
If You Didn’t Receive Your February 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 is different than 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 that 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.

Texas will deposit February 2023 food stamp benefits into your EBT account anytime from February 1st to February 15th. The date that you will receive your food stamps will depend on the last digit of your EDG number.
There is only one federal holiday in February 2023 and that is President’s Day which falls on February 20th. If your EBT benefits are scheduled to be deposited around this time they could be delayed.
The same goes if your EBT deposit date falls on a weekend. Those benefits could be either issued the Friday before or on the Monday after the weekend.
