  Xerox Statement on Temporary EBT Systems Outage

Business Wire

NORWALK, Conn. -- October 12, 2013

During a routine test of our back-up systems Saturday morning, Xerox’s
Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) system experienced a temporary shutdown.
While the system is now up and running, beneficiaries in the 17 affected
states continue to experience connectivity issues to access their
benefits.This disruption impacts EBT beneficiaries who rely on the system for
SNAP and WIC.Technical staff is addressing the issue and expect the system to
be restored soon. Beneficiaries requiring access to their benefits can work
with their local retailers who can activate an emergency voucher system where
available. We appreciate our clients’ patience while we work through this
outage as quickly as possible.
