Ohio Food Stamp Recipients Getting Some March Benefits Early

Feb 15, 2019

The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services says families due to receive food assistance in March will be getting it early.  

Food stamp recipients will receive 50 percent of their March benefits on February 22nd.  The feds will then pay out the remaining 50 percent on the normal March issuance date. Officials say the split payment is due to the recent partial federal government shutdown.
