If your current Georgia food stamps card is lost, stolen or no longer working and you will like to get a replacement card, you’ve come to the right place. We will walk you through the steps you need to take to get a replacement card re-issued and mailed to you. See below for details:
Step 1 – Call Customer Service: The Georgia Division of Family and Children Services has instructions for how to get a Georgia food stamps card replacement in case you lost your current EBT card, or do not know where it is or found out it is no longer working. The first thing to do is call the customer service number and report the issue immediately. The number to call is: 1-888-421-3281. This is a toll free number.
They will ask you some questions to make sure you are who you are. Be prepared to provide your social security number, date of birth, phone number that is associated with your EBT card and mailing address. They will immediately disable the old card. A replacement card will be mailed to the address they have on file for you. If your address has changed and has not been updated with them, you need to tell the customer service person. In order to make sure that someone is not trying to report your card stolen and have a new one sent to them at their address, they may ask you more questions to make sure you are indeed who you are and the rightful owner of the account.
Step 2 – Wait for New Card to Arrive
After you call customer service, you should allow 5-7 business days for the replacement card to arrive to you in the mail. During this time, you do not have to worry – your benefits will be protected as soon as you report your EBT card as lost or stolen. When you receive your replacement card, your current PIN is transferred to your replacement card so you do not need to change your current PIN. However, if you want to select a new PIN, select the option to change your PIN.
