Once you file an application for benefits that can be accessed with an electronic benefits transfer (EBT) card in California, the state must process the application within 30 days under normal circumstances and within three days if you qualify for emergency processing. However, there are steps you must complete while the clock is ticking. You must verify the information you provided is truthful, and you must comply with any mandatory interviews. During this process, you will be provided with login information for the EBT website. You can use your login information to check the balance on your EBT card, as well as check the status of benefits.
