(Jackson, Miss.) – Families across Mississippi have begun to receive P-EBT cards for their eligible children.


The Mississippi Department of Human Services is reminding parents of the process to activate their child’s card.


To activate the P-EBT card for each child, please call 1-866-512-5087. This phone number is printed on the back of the card.


Information regarding how to PIN each child’s card is also available in the document that arrived in the envelope with the child’s P-EBT card. Parents do not need to call the P-EBT call center to activate the card.


If families have other P-EBT related questions, please call the P-EBT Call Center at 1-833-316-2423.
