I haven’t received my card. Do I need to appeal?
Within the first week of September, the Minnesota Department of Human Services will begin to send denial notices to families. If you provided a valid email address when you applied, the denial notice will be sent to the email address provided. If you did not provide a valid email address, the denial will be mailed to the physical address you provided. Please check your email and postal mail carefully. Your appeal must be complete, including documents, by the date on the denial notice.
The deadline for your appeal depends on how you received your denial notice.
- Received a denial email: Appeals and documents are due by Sept. 14, 2020.
- Received a paper denial or have children in private school: Appeals and documents are due by Sept. 18, 2020.
You do not need to appeal if you have not received a denial notice and your children attended a private school. It has taken additional time to match data from private schools. Your case has not yet been decided. Applicants who are denied will be informed by email or letter by mid-September and will have an opportunity to appeal. We anticipate all families with eligible children in private schools will receive their P-EBT benefits by Sept. 30.
If you did not receive P-EBT benefits or a denial notice, and your children did not attend a private school, it is likely that we do not have your correct address. Please complete the P-EBT Help Form and include your current correct address.
If you received a denial notice and you believe that your child or children are eligible, you will need to file an appeal and provide supporting documentation to confirm eligibility.
