    Yes, the Texas Dept of H&H services has actually changed those dates. It is no longer from the 1st of each month to the 15th. For example, since becoming a snap recipient I’ve always gotten my foodstamps on the 7th of each month ALWAYS & if you call the help desk it’ll say my stamps will be In my account on the 7th but that is no longer the case. I now get mine & have been getting them on the 28th of each month & those who were getting them on the 6th now get em on the 27th. They’ve changed the dates completely. Thought you may wanna know.

      No thank you Kriste for the information!

      I did hear that THHS was short staffed and it was taking longer for them to process new food stamp applications, so this shortage of staff may be playing a role in them issuing the benefits it seems about 20 days late. Again I appreciate the update and I’ll make note of this.
