Pennsylvania Consumers Report Stolen SNAP Benefits

The Pennsylvania Department of Human Services (DHS) is reminding consumers to protect their Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits from skimming at point-of-sale machines or ATMs. Card skimmer devices have been reported in Philadelphia and Southeastern Pennsylvania. DHS announced in 2023 that Pennsylvanians who have had their SNAP benefits stolen can have their cards replaced but must fill out a Benefit Theft Claim within 60 calendar days of the incident.
