Beneficiary access to programs such as SNAP, TANF, and other programs has been restored to the 17 States where Xerox provides EBT service, including Ohio, said a Xerox official.

WEWS reached out to The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS), U.S. Department of Agriculture and Xerox for answers regarding the issue.
