QUESTION: Where and how do I use my Oregon Trail Card/EBT card?
ANSWER: You can buy food with your SNAP/Food Stamp benefits.
-If you receive cash benefits you can buy non-food items with your cash benefits, get cash back from your cash benefits when you make a purchase (you will not be charged a extra fee for this), or get cash from your cash benefits without making a purchase (some stores may limit the amount of cash you can get). After the first two withdrawals, your benefits account will be charged 85 cents per transaction.
-You can also get cash from your cash benefits account at an ATM. Your cash benefits account will be charged 85 cents for each withdrawal from an ATM. Some ATMs may charge you another fee as well. You can find out if you will be charged an extra fee by starting to take out money. The ATM will tell you how much it will charge. You can then cancel the withdrawal and try another ATM.
-If you do not see the Oregon Trail sign at a store, ask the store manager if you can use your card to buy things or to get cash.
-For further information visit the website, walk in to your local self-sufficiency office or call. They have a brochure with more information about how to use the Oregon trail card which is available in English, Russian, Spanish and Vietnamese.
