Temporary outage to affect ACCESS cards

Posted: Updated:

A planned, temporary outage will affect Electronic Benefit Transfer cards beginning 11 p.m. Saturday through noon Sunday.

The state Department of Public Welfare said cardholders will not be able to make any purchases with their card or access their account for information during the outage, which is occurring during a change of card vendors.

According to a Public Welfare Department news release, the new vendor will be more convenient for the cardholder, who will now be able to get their benefits sooner, order replacement cards at any time, and more easily replace their pin number.

Benefits will not change for cardholders, who will be able to use their same EBT card and shop at the same grocery stores.
