|CalFresh SSI Expansion|
On June 1, 2019, the CalFresh program was expanded to SSI/SSP recipients to receive food benefits on an EBT card. Most SSI/SSP recipients and couples living on their own may be eligible for CalFresh while continuing to receive their SSI/SSP income from Social Security. To know more visit SSI and CalFresh.
There is NO CHANGE or reduction to SSI/SSP amounts.
Food benefits are issued monthly on an easy-to-use Electronic Benefit Transfer card.
Recipients can buy food at any grocery store or farmers market that accepts EBT.
CalFresh Food benefits can stretch food budgets and provide more healthy choices.
