P-EBT Update March 2021

Kentucky has been approved by the USDA to provide Round 3 of P-EBT benefits to all eligible students to cover the period of October 2020 through May 2021. Below you will find the summary information for Round 3 of P-EBT benefits for Rockcastle County Students.


How will benefits be distributed?

  • Students who are a current SNAP recipient will have their benefits loaded directly on their SNAP card on the designated P-EBT day each month (see information below).
  • Any eligible student that is not a current SNAP recipient will receive their benefits on the P-EBT card that was used in the previous round.
  • If you no longer have your P-EBT card or it is damaged, you can request a new card by calling (888) 979-9949 and it will be mailed within two weeks.
  • If your address has changed and you need a new P-EBT card, you can call (855) 306-8959 to update your address and have a new card mailed to you.

When will I receive my benefits? 

Benefits for October 2020 will be issued on SNAP and P-EBT cards by the end of March 2021. Following the October benefit distribution, benefits for November 2020-February 2021 will be spread out and loaded on SNAP and P-EBT cards each week following.
