Vermont Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) is a system responsible for the electronic distribution of benefits for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). The Vermont EBT card is administered through the Department for Children and Families and Economic Services Division.
Your EBT card can be used at participating stores, ATMs, and farmers’ markets anywhere the QUEST logo is displayed. For more information on where you can find stores, ATMs, or farmers’ markets that except Vermont EBT, click the previous links. Please advise that you cannot use an ATM or make purchases using your cash benefits at any casino, gaming establishment, liquor store or strip club any benefits used at restricted locations must be repaid in full.
How It Works:
- A Vermont EBT car is mailed to you
- Once received, you are prompted to select a 4-digit Personal Identification Number (PIN). You’ll need to enter this number every time you use the EBT card.
- Benefits are added to your card on the same date each month. The date depends on which program you fall under.
- Your benefit balance will decrease when you purchase goods or withdraw cash.
