Government Shutdown NOT to Blame for EBT Card Error

Posted: Updated:

News Channel 12 has received numerous phone calls and messages about EBT cards being declined in the metro. According to officials with the Mississippi Department of Human Services EBT cards in 17 states are being declined. We're told the vendor for EBT cards, that services many states including MS for SNAP benefits, had equipment problems which has caused cards to be declined.  Officials with DHS say this has nothing to do with the federal government shut down. The vendor expects the problem to be resolved shortly.
