Kern County official: State EBT - cash aid - glitch fixed

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — Some cash aid recipients ran into a problem accessing funds Wednesday.

Kern County Department of Human Services spokeswoman Barbara Zimmerman says an "issue with the system" across the state prevented people from receiving funds via their California Electronic Benefit Transfer card. The glitch had been fixed by early afternoon.

Benefits are allocated to recipients throughout the month, and Zimmerman believes the glitch should only impact people slated to receive benefits Wednesday.

Zimmerman didn't give details of the glitch.
