21-22 PEBT Benefits

Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT)

On May 24, 2022 Virginia’s P-EBT program has been approved by the USDA to issue benefits for the 2021-2022 school year. Eligibility requirements have changed and benefits will be issued based on revised federal guidelines that schools and students are required to meet. Fewer households are expected to receive the benefits this year.

If you believe there are students in your household who met all of the P-EBT requirements and you have not received P-EBT benefits or you have questions regarding previous issuances of benefits, please contact the P-EBT Call Center from 7 a.m. – 7 p.m Monday – Friday and Saturdays from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. at 866-513-1414 or 804-294-1633 or use the P-EBT Online Inquiry Form.

For more information and to view eligibility criteria, please visit the Virginia Department of Social Services Pandemic EBT information page. Please do not contact your child’s school or local department of social services with P-EBT questions.
