BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) – The Louisiana Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) has confirmed that (SNAP) is back up and running after being shut down for most of Sunday, July 17th.
Here’s what DCFS released:
DCFS confirmed that Louisiana SNAP retailers were denied EBT transactions due to a communications outage involving our national carrier Sunday (7/17/22). We apologize for any inconvenience this issue has caused our EBT card holders and we hope to have the issue resolved later today.
EBT recipients can call the LifeInCheck EBT Call Center (1-888-997-1117) or use the LifeInCheck EBT smart phone app to check their balance or report their card lost, stolen or damaged. Cardholders should ask retailers if the merchant will support a manual voucher for SNAP purchases until electronic purchases are restored. Some retailers have this capability.
