FAQs about Florida EBT

Here are the most frequently asked questions about free admission with the Florida SNAP program and Florida EBT Discounts.

Is the Tampa Zoo free with an EBT card?

If you receive Florida EBT, you and your kids can go to some of the nicest places in Tampa for free.

Unfortunately, the Tampa Zoo does not offer discounted admissions for EBT cardholders.

However, active-duty military and veterans can get $4 off per ticket on up to 4 tickets.

All you need to do is bring a form of ID to verify your military status and purchase your tickets at the front gate ticket windows.

What Grocery Stores Accept Florida EBT for Delivery?

0n April 21, 2020, both Walmart and Amazon will begin accepting online purchasing with Florida EBT statewide.

Additionally, the following grocery stores accept Florida EBT through the Instacart mobile app:

  • Aldi
  • Publix

For more details on this, see our post on Buying Groceries Online with Florida EBT Card.

Can I have someone else help shop with my EBT Card?

Ask your local county food stamps caseworker about setting up an Authorized Representative (AR).

The AR will have a separate card with his or her own account number and PIN. The AR will have access to your entire EBT benefit account.

Will I get extra Florida SNAP benefits in 2021?

Yes! If your monthly Florida SNAP benefit is less than the maximum SNAP for your household size, you will get a supplemental benefit up to the maximum SNAP grant for January through March, plus you will get 15% more.

Thereafter, you will get at least 15% more than your usual allotment through September 2021.

The Florida DCF may decide to supplement your SNAP benefits up to maximum allotments in future months, but will make that decision on a month-to-month basis.

If you already get the maximum SNAP benefit, you will get 15% more than the maximum allotment for your household size through September 2021.

Household size – Max SNAP/with 15%
1 – $204/$234
2 – $374/$430
3 – $535/$616
4 – $680/$782
5 – $807/$929
6 – $969/$1114
7 – $1071$1232
8 – $1224$1408
Each additional member – +$153/$176

How do I find out how much I get in SNAP and whether I get extra SNAP?

The Florida DCF may not send you a notice to inform you of extra SNAP benefits.

Therefore, the best way to find out if you are going to get extra benefits this month is to check your balance and your monthly SNAP benefit amount by using the information below:

Check your Florida EBT balance online or call (888) 356-3281 to check your balance by phone.

Additionally, you can call the DCF’s Customer Call Center at (866) 762-2237 or (850) 300-4323 to get more information.
