SNAP, formerly known as food stamps, is a federally funded program administered by the Department of Social Services (DSS) in South Carolina. SNAP recipients receive monthly benefits through their SNAP account, which is linked to the South Carolina EBT card.

Your benefits can be used anywhere that accepts EBT cards as payment, which is most grocery stores and large retailers. EBT cards work just like debit or credit cards, and benefits can be used to purchase food and seeds and plants which produce food for consumption.

You can apply for SNAP in South Carolina online through the DSS Benefits Portal. To apply in person, by mail or by fax, contact any DSS county office. To check whether or not you are potentially eligible for SNAP benefits, select “Am I Eligible” on the DSS Benefits Portal.

If you filed a new SNAP application, benefits are available the day following your case approval. For an ongoing SNAP case, benefits are sent out on the same day every month — between the 1st and the 19th. The day you receive your SNAP benefits depends on the last digit of your case number.
