Pandemic EBT

The deadline has passed for submission of Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) inquiries and no additional approvals for P-EBT benefits will be made for children who were eligible during the 2019-2020 school year.

Parents may use the P-EBT search portal to check the status of previously approved benefits.

SNAP Online Food Purchasing

To encourage the practice of social distancing and reduce potential exposure to COVID-19, the USDA has authorized purchases of eligible food items online with an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card from Walmart and Amazon. SCDSS will update as other retailers and independent grocers in SC become approved for online purchasing.

Child Support

Good news! A new Customer Service Portal will be available in early 2021 to allow parents to view and update information about their case – any time, any day!
