The Tennessee Department of Human Services announced that June 2024 benefits will be split into two payments for customers who received their May benefits early and participate in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.

This is a one-time schedule adjustment for June benefits only to ensure Tennessee families receive necessary assistance following the early issuance payment for May benefits.

The first benefit distribution for June benefits will take place May 24th, 2024. The second benefit distribution will take place in June on the standard monthly distribution date.

The Tennessee Department of Human Services in compliance with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food and Nutrition Service is required to notify all customers of this change even if it does not affect them directly.

Regular deposit schedules will resume in July 2024. Customers are encouraged to check their EBT card balance by calling 888-997-9444.
