The FoodShare program in Wisconsin, which functions like food stamps, will begin disbursing payments to recipients within the next six days.
From the second through the fifteenth of each month, participants get monthly payout, from the state’s equivalent of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. By August 15, distribution for this month should be finished. The eighth digit of a person’s Social Security number determines the day they begin receiving benefits.
People whose eighth digit was zero received their benefits on August 2, and people whose eighth digit was one received their payment on August 3. Eighth-digit beneficiaries with the number two received their benefits on August 5, those with the number three received their monthly payment on August 6, those with the number four received their benefits on August 8, and those with the number five received their benefits on August 9.
Those who have eighth digits between six and nine have not yet received their benefits; they will do so anytime between August 11 and August 15th. To make purchases in stores, funds are loaded onto the beneficiary’s Wisconsin QUEST card.
The eighth digit of a recipient’s Social Security number determines the day of the month in which they get their regular payments.
Participants in the program who have the number zero as their eighth digit received their rewards on August 2, while those who have the number one received their payout on August 3. Eighth-digit beneficiaries with the number 2 received their benefits on August 5, those with the number 3 received their monthly payment on Sunday, those with the number 4 received their benefits on Tuesday, those with the number 5 received their benefits on Wednesday, and those with the number 6 received their benefits on Friday.
The remaining program participants who have eighth-digit Social Security numbers between seven and nine will get their monthly rewards between Saturday and Tuesday. The funds are transferred to the recipient’s Wisconsin QUEST card, which can subsequently be used to make in-store purchases.
Bread, cereal, fruit, vegetables, meat, fish, poultry, dairy, “snack foods,” non-alcoholic drinks, along with seeds and plants to grow food, are all eligible for purchase with Wisconsin’s food stamp benefits.
