SNAP card benefits are being extended to Wisconsin and New Mexico thanks to FL-based FIS. More than 205,000 households in New Mexico are enrolled in Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), and more than 450,000 households in Wisconsin receive benefits via SNAP or Women, Infants and Children (WIC) – both federal programs created to provide support to individuals and families.
FIS recently completed the successful conversion of New Mexico’s SNAP and implementation of the Wisconsin WIC benefits program to EBT card services, after supporting Wisconsin’s SNAP program for nearly a decade.
FIS was awarded both multi-year contracts because of its superior customer service, a strong reputation for stability and innovative fraud management solutions, including real-time transaction monitoring capabilities and revolutionary tools to manage and immediately act on security risks, thus removing the compliance burden from clients.
FIS’ Government Solutions Group provides EBT support relationships to all 50 states, and it serves millions of SNAP recipients and WIC participants nationwide.
