Illinois Link Card

Who can get an Illinois Link Card?

Illinois Link Card Blue

Anyone approved to receive cash assistance or SNAP (Food Stamps) benefits will be issued an Illinois Link card.  The Illinois Link card is a plastic card that looks and works like a debit card.  If you are eligible for cash and SNAP benefits, you will access both with the same card. Only one Illinois Link Card is issued per account. Children issued P-EBT for the 2020-2021 school year will each have their own account.
