What is LifeInCheck EBT?

LifeInCheck EBT is a free mobile app for Louisiana citizens that have SNAP. The app lets you check your SNAP balance, upcoming deposit, transaction history, and more. It is available on the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store. If you have an Android or Apple device updated with recent software, you can download and use this app.

The app is made by Inmar Intelligence, which is Louisiana’s trusted EBT contractor. This means the app is not made by an unknown, untrustworthy third party. Your personal information should be safe within the app.

What are some downsides of the LifeInCheck EBT app?

The reviews for the app on both the Google Play and Apple App Store tend to be low. This is because many people report that the app will log them out of their accounts or make them frequently change their passwords. It can be difficult to log back in, especially when the app seems to frequently have issues that the user is not at fault for.

Not only that, but customer service can also be difficult to contact. If you are able to speak to them, reviews suggest they may not be very helpful. If you experience any difficulties with the LifeInCheck EBT app, you can email [email protected] for assistance.

If you have been locked out of your account, this is what the Louisiana Department of Children & Family Services website suggests to do.

Email [email protected] with the following information:

  • The subject line of the email as the word LOCKED
  • The name located on the front of your EBT card
  • The last 6 digits of your EBT card number
  • The last 4 digits of your Social Security number OR the last 4 digits of your child’s Student ID if the account is for P-EBT benefits

Your account should be unlocked and unregistered within 2 business days. After that, you will have to register again.

Registering through the LifeInCheck EBT website sounds like it may be the easiest way to avoid issues when logging in for the first time.
