Food stamps: Utah residents have two more chances to collect February SNAP payments worth up to $1,751


The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program began sending benefits for February to Utah residents on Monday, and those not collecting on Monday have two more dates to receive their payments.

Food stamps are sent to SNAP-participating households in Utah over three days each month: the 5th, 11th, and 15th. Benefits are distributed based on the first letter of a recipient’s last name.

A household of one can receive a maximum of $291, a household of five can receive a maximum of $1,155, and a household of eight can receive a maximum of $1,751. For each additional person, a household can receive a maximum of $219. Those amounts are based on the cost-of-living adjustments for 2023-24.
