      P-EBT Update: 4/7/2021

To reset your pin:
Constituents will be able to reset their PIN by calling the customer service line on the back of the card. 
1-866-281-2448
If you have not received benefits:
If constituents have not received their benefits they will need to contact our P-EBT call center at 866-513-1414 or by submitting an inquiry on our pebtva.com page to look into the missing benefits.
 
New P-EBT cards delayed:
 
The VDSS learned of a mechanical breakdown that caused a delay in printing certain P-EBT
cards. New P-EBT cards for about 105,000 households were needed for data in the R3 and R4
files. As of yesterday, 30,000 cards had been printed and mailed. The VDSS is working with the
vendor on a solution to make the cards available more quickly, but it could take an additional
four weeks.
 
Benefits will be automatically loaded to the existing P-EBT or EBT card.  If it is the first time receiving benefits, a pre-loaded P-EBT card will be mailed to the current address in the student's school record or funds will be added to their SNAP or EBT card.

P-EBT benefits will be issued to eligible households on the following schedule: WCPS are participating in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP).  All enrolled students receive meals at no cost and are eligible for P-EBT Benefits.


         Benefit Period                                                     Issuance Date
October 2020 – November 2020                                 March 17, 2021
December 2020 – January 2021                                 TBD                   
February 2021                                                             End of March   
March 2021                                                                  End of April     
April 2021                                                                    End of May      
May 2021                                                                     End of June    
                                                                  

Benefits will be automatically loaded to the existing P-EBT or EBT card.  If it is the first time receiving benefits, a pre-loaded P-EBT card will be mailed to the current address in the student's school record or funds will be added to their SNAP or EBT card.

P-EBT Replacement Card Instructions

Call 1-866-281-2448, logon to https://www.connectebt.com/, or download the ConnectEBT app on a mobile device.  

P-EBT card accounts did not use the parent/guardian's Social Security Number (SSN) or the parent/guardian's date of birth (DOB). When P-EBT households use the automated system, (phone, website, or mobile app) to request a replacement card or access account information, they should use the following information at each step.

  • "Enter P-EBT card number" - for replacement card, bypass by pressing "2" to use personal information.
  • "Enter primary cardholder's SSN" - all PEBT cardholders must enter 000000000, not their own SSN.
  • "Enter primary cardholders DOB" - all P-EBT cardholders should enter the oldest student's DOB, if there was more than one student's benefits on the card. It is the same student DOB that was used to PIN the card.
  • "Enter PIN" - PEBT cardholders should enter the PIN of the card they are seeking to replace.

 

School Meals at No Charge for All Children

Effective immediately, Washington County Virginia Schools will be serving meals at no charge to children 18 and under. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has approved waivers for local school divisions and other federal meal program sponsors to implement the Summer Food Service Program to provide meals to children in the community free of charge through June 30, 2021. The waivers support access to nutritious meals while minimizing exposure to COVID-19.

Meals are available to all children including those learning in-person or virtually and regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability.
