Summary as passed: (all summaries)

Food stamp program; excessive requests for replacement of electronic benefit transfer card. Requires the Department of Social Services (the Department) to monitor all requests for replacement of electronic benefit transfer (EBT) cards issued to food stamp program recipients. The bill provides that a request for replacement of an EBT card shall be deemed excessive if a food stamp program recipient or a member of his household has made four such requests within 12 months prior to the request. The bill requires the Department, upon receipt of a fourth request for replacement of an EBT card within a 12-month period, to give written notice to the recipient household that it has reached the threshold allowance for replacement requests, its account is being monitored for suspicious activity, and future replacement requests will require contact with the Department to provide an explanation before a replacement card will be issued. The bill requires the Department, upon receipt of a fifth replacement request within a 12-month period, to give written notice to the recipient household that it has exceeded the threshold allowance for replacement requests and that the replacement EBT card is being withheld until the household contacts the Department to provide an explanation for the high volume of replacement requests. The bill provides the terms under which a replacement card will be issued or withheld, delineates factors that require the Department to investigate excessive card replacement requests, and sets forth requirements for notices sent under the provisions of the bill.
