Food stamps: February payments to Colorado residents worth up to $1,751 begin in seven days

Low-income residents in Colorado will receive their February payments from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program in seven days.

SNAP households will receive food stamps from Feb. 1 through Feb. 10 in the Centennial State. Those who join the program after Feb. 10 can still receive benefits for the month and will not need to wait until March. Benefits are distributed on the date that matches the last digit of a household’s Social Security number.

The average payment per household member per month in Colorado is $181. Approximately 540,300 people, 9% of Colorado’s population, receive SNAP benefits in the state.

The SSN will correspond to the date the benefits are received. For example, those with SSNs ending in 4 will receive payments on Feb. 4. Those with SSNs ending with 9 will collect on Feb. 9, and so on.
