To use your Texas Lone Star Card, swipe your card in the store’s payment machine, select “EBT”, enter your PIN and keep the receipt. Your receipt will show the amount left in your SNAP account. You can also check your Lone Star Card balance and view recent card activity through your online account at YourTexasBenefits.com.

SNAP eligibility is based on household income and resources. Most people between the ages of 16 and 59 must also follow work rules to get SNAP benefits. According to Texas work rules, you must be looking for a job or be in an approved work program. If you have a job, you cannot quit without a good reason.

Texas has a program for households in which all members are either older adults (age 60 and older) or people with disabilities, called Texas Simplified Application Project (TSAP). The TSAP simplifies the SNAP application process and it provides three years of benefits instead of six months.
