In five days, qualified residents in California will receive payments totaling up to $1,751 through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.

Payments for the SNAP program, which is referred to as CalFresh in California, started on Monday and benefits are distributed from the first to the tenth of each month. Benefit recipients’ arrival dates are determined by their case number, last name, or Social Security number as a household. Payments are disbursed in California based on the case numbers of the recipients.

The amount that each beneficiary will receive depends on several variables, including household size, income thresholds, and other assets. For a single household, the maximum payment is $291; for a household of four, it is $973; and for a household of eight, it is $1,751. After eight, each additional family member’s food stamp benefit is increased by up to $219.

Every month, SNAP benefits are transferred to an electronic benefits transfer card. At grocery stores, recipients can use the card to make eligible food purchases, such as fruits, vegetables, bread, meat, poultry, and drinks, just like they would with a debit card. Pet food, alcohol, and household goods are not eligible for SNAP benefits.

According to data from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, approximately 5 million Californians, or 13% of the state’s total population, receive CalFresh assistance each month.
