Households that regularly use the card will not lose it food stamps after nine months, according to Forbes.

States must notify Americans that they face the loss of their benefits no later than 30 days before the scheduled date of their removal.

It is important for recipients to submit their updated contact details to their local SNAP agency.

Beneficiaries must use their EBT about every three months or it can be used offline.

If this happens, Americans must contact their SNAP agency to have their card reinstated.

In Washington, the account will be inactive if the recipient does not withdraw the funds within 60 days.

The term is reset every time an American uses their account.

Affected Americans will receive a letter outlining steps on how they can reactivate their accounts.
