Full Answer

In Pennsylvania, the key determinant of the exact date of a beneficiary's monthly benefit payment is the last digit in his or her case number. Case numbers that end with 1 correspond to SNAP payments on the first business day of the month, numbers ending with 2 correlate with SNAP payments on the second business day, and so on.
