Can I use my EBT cash benefits at a gas station to get gas? Usually I just swipe my debit card but I have an uneven balance so I can't withdraw it from an ATM and was wondering if I cud just use it at a Hess?

Yes, here you can use them anywhere. But the gas pumps are programmed not to take them at the pump so you have to take them inside.

If the gas station takes it inside then yes. But not at the pumps




You are better off going to the grocery store and doing a cash back thing at the check out. Or using a Publix atm if you have a Publix

you can take it off at an atm from your EBT card - but I am nt sure if you meant uneven on debit or uneven on ebt

I think she meant uneven on ebt so she can't withdrawal.




OP if the store accepts the ebt card you can. But you will have to pay inside. You just tell them ebt cash when paying.
