Replacement EBT card in Georgia
If your EBT card is lost, stolen, or not working, you need to call the EBT card customer service for Georgia immediately to make sure no one is able to use your card while you try to get a replacement card. You can call them toll free at -888-421-3281. Call them as soon as you can so that your account can be secured, especially if you think the card is stolen. The longer you wait to call them, the more you are likely to lose money in your account through fraudulent purchases or unauthorized purchases.
One problem you may run into is if you changed your address and did not update your EBT account online. That is likely to delay the arrival of your replacement EBT card. If that’s the case, be sure to let customer service know when you call them to request the replacement card. Otherwise, the new card will be mailed to your previous address, which will set you back further in how soon you can receive your new card and start using it again. If there are no delays and no address issues, then you should expect your replacement card to arrive in about a week – It usually takes between 5-7 days according to the DFCS website.
