Monthly Benefit Issuance Schedule

Date: 01/01/2016

Benefits are generally made available based on the last digit of the client’s case number. For all counties, except the 5 boroughs of NYC (aka Upstate NY):

Case number ends in Benefits available
0 or 1 1st of the month
2 2nd of the month
3 3rd of the month
4 4th of the month
5 5th of the month
6 6th of the month
7 7th of the month
8 8th of the month
9 9th of the month

For NYC cases, benefit postings are spread out over 13 different days that are not Sundays or holidays, during the first two weeks of each month. The actual dates change from one month to the next, so NYC publishes a six-month schedule showing the exact availability dates. Click here to see the current schedule. This is also based on the last digit of the Case Number. Find the digit in the first column of the schedule. That row lists the monthly deposit dates for your benefits over the six-month period. SNAP deposits are made during the A Cycle of each month.
