Temporary Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) outage in Fresno County
FRESNO, Calif. (FOX26 NEWS) —
The Fresno County Department of Social Services wants to remind Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) holders there will be a temporary outage in the county.
It says it will start at 11 p.m. Saturday, June 23, until 11 p.m. Sunday, June 24. Card holders are advised to plan ahead for their shopping needs and for getting cash.
The reason for the outage is because the State of California is transitioning from the current EBT vendor to a new vendor. Therefore, this planned outage is necessary to complete the transition from one system to the other.
