The Department of Social Services (DSS) and the South Carolina Department of Education (SCDE) are working to provide Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) benefits to qualifying children across South Carolina, and we need your help to ensure children attending your schools are able to receive them if they are eligible. All households with potentially eligible students are strongly encouraged to validate their address in the DSS P-EBT Address Portal on or before March 19, 2021. The P-EBT Address Portal is located on the DSS website at, https://benefitsportal.dss.sc.gov/#/pebt/addressverification. To locate a child in the Address Portal the parent must have: Student Last Name, Date of Birth, Student ID, School District, and School Name. If a parent or guardian does not know the Student ID, they must obtain this information from the child’s school.
