For Questions Regarding P-EBT Please See Below
Only students approved for free or reduced meals (through submission of the free and reduced meal application) or who attend a CEP school are eligible for P-EBT.
The first issuances for P-EBT cards for Summer 2023 has been delayed until September 9, 2023. Parents should allow 15 business days after that for the cards to arrive in the mail. Parents need to go to the DSS portal to make changes in addresses prior to August 10, 2023 at: https://benefitsportal.dss.sc.gov/#/pebt/addressverification. Please remember students must have been enrolled and attending school the last 20 days of school for the 2022-23 school year and were approved for free or reduced meals or attended a CEP school to be eligible for these payments. Schools switching to CEP cannot process meal applications for the 2023-24 school year for any reason.
