P-EBT Program Wrapping Up: Important Dates and Information
As we approach the end of the year, we would like to update you on the status of the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) program, which has been a crucial lifeline for many families during the ongoing pandemic
November 30, 2023 - Deadline for Parent/Guardian Inquiries: The Department of Human Services (DHS) wants to remind parents and guardians that the deadline to contact the DHS Family P-EBT Support Center with any questions regarding their child's P-EBT benefits is rapidly approaching. If you have any inquiries, please don't hesitate to reach out. You can contact the DHS Family P-EBT Support Center at 877-343-0179 or online at http://www.pennebt.com/.
December 29, 2023 - Last Date for P-EBT School Helpdesk**: The P-EBT School Helpdesk, which has been assisting schools and the DHS with outstanding family P-EBT inquiries, will be open until December 29, 2023. After this date, the helpdesk will no longer be available for assistance. If you have any unresolved matters that require school input, please ensure that you contact the helpdesk before this date.
We understand that some family inquiries may require school input to resolve. To ensure that all issues are adequately addressed, we will continue to forward these inquiries to schools even after the P-EBT School Helpdesk closes. We appreciate your prompt response to these inquiries, which is instrumental in providing support to families who rely on P-EBT benefits.
The P-EBT program has been a critical resource for many families, and we are grateful for your ongoing support in ensuring that eligible children receive the benefits they deserve. As the program concludes, we want to thank all schools, parents, guardians, and partners for their collaboration and commitment to the well-being of our students.
