DBN Quarterly Call: Increasing Security and Equity in Electronic Benefits Transfer

February 15, 2023
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm ET

Join the Digital Benefits Network  for an urgent discussion on Increasing Security and Equity in Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) on February 15th at 12:00pm ET. Headlines across the country demonstrate there has been exponential growth in benefits theft by criminals who are “cloning and skimming” EBT cards, leaving thousands of families with drained accounts and limited recourse in getting back their benefits. Thankfully Congress included short term reimbursement for EBT theft victims in the most recent omnibus package. State SNAP agencies now face a pressing deadline to submit plans to the Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) by the end of February outlining how they will process theft claims, track data, and adopt future security measures.

Join our panel of experts to discuss:

  • What’s happening on the ground with benefits theft

  • What states can do right now to improve EBT security

  • How states can use data to analyze theft patterns

  • How EBT payment technology needs to evolve to ensure efficiency, security, and dignity for beneficiaries

  • Cybersecurity trends in consumer banking technology
