So you can use EBT cards at ATM's now?

Sitting here doing laundry in a laundromat (inb4 lol you poor), and the ATM machine has an EBT/Louisiana Purchase option. I've never seen such a thing. Have they moved away from food stamps and its simply free money now?

I thought EBT also included other government benefits like disability payments or welfare, not just food stamp $--that's why some places say you can use your cash benefits there.

Louisiana Purchase cards were always for food stamps as far as I know.

No, some people are eligible for cash benefits, like SSDI, and that's put on the card too. I think when they check out, they have to tell the checker if i's SNAP (food stamps, for food only) or from their cash account (other welfare which can be used for non-food stuff). I guess the ATM gives them $ from their cash benefits account.

Ah, was unaware of that.

Hmmm, why so knowledgeable on the subject?

Well, you can take your money out of the ATM. So why can't they take your money out too?

I didn't know either until I read the multiple threads on here about it, including the Popeye's "now accepting EBT" thread from a couple of months ago. I remember there was one thread a while back about clothing stores with signs saying they took EBT too.

I just Googled to find all that info I told you. There was one link which was a PDF, but it was too hard to quote it.

I guess me and the wife need to get a paper divorce and go the food stamp route. As a teacher with kids, my wife would make bank off the government and I would eat like a freaking king.

I mean I'm cool with fruity-O's instead of fruit loops
