    Summer P-EBT 2022
    DSS and SCDE have determined that SC will be doing summer P-EBT for this summer. This first payment will go out in late August for students that were approved for free or reduced meals or attended a CEP school at the end of the 2021-22 school year. These payments will not be affected by virtual or in-person school. The second summer payment will be issued in October and will cover all students that are approved for free or reduced meals from the end of school until August 16th.
    Questions regarding school age P-EBT can be sent to the PEBT@ed.sc.gov inbox. Questions regarding childcare P-EBT should be sent to DSS at PEBTBenefits@dss.sc.gov.
    The DSS portal will be open for summer payments.
    No further changes can be made to payments from the 2020-21 school year or last summer.
