EBT Benefit Issuance and Availability - Inactive Account
(01/01/21 – 12/31/21)
When an EBT account has been inactive for 90 days or more, the account is considered aged.
When an EBT account is aged, AZTECS completes the following:
For CA, issues an Aged Cash Assistance Account X073 notice
For NA, issues an Aged Nutrition Assistance X013 notice
Once the EBT account is aged the only action required by the card holder to keep the account active is to use the EBT card.
When the card holder has not accessed their NA EBT benefits for 274 days and CA EBT benefits for 180 days, from the initial date of benefit activity, the EBT benefits are expunged. The card holder loses all rights to regain those EBT benefits.
When a program is denied or closed due to the death of the entire budgetary unit, the EBT account is deactivated and benefits expunged.
