(WXYZ) - The Michigan Department of Technology, Management and Budget says they have completed the process of restoring assistance benefits to all Bridge Cards that were hit by an error that left many unable to buy food.
On Wednesday, DTMB announced they left 85,000 food assistance recipients in the state without loaded Bridge Cards.
DTMB says that cards for clients with account numbers ending in “0” were not loaded. A small number of with an identification number ending in “1” were also impacted.
At grocery stores across the state cashiers delivered the news that there was no money on their cards to frustrated customers.
“DTMB understands the hardship that this situation has caused Michigan families and the inconvenience to the businesses that serve them,” said DTMB spokesperson Kurt Weiss in a statement at the time the error was discovered.
The state now says "all food assistance is back on the normal schedule and recipients can now plan for on-time receipt of benefits."
