Popeye’s is one of the world’s largest chicken restaurant chains, with more than 2,700 locations worldwide and a devoted customer base that swears it makes the best bird anywhere. If you are one of those customers and qualify for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits, you can use your SNAP electronic benefits payment card at participating Popeye’s restaurants — as long as you are in the right state.

Popeye’s is one of the restaurant chains that accepts SNAP EBT cards for purchases, according to the FoodStampsNow website. SNAP is a federal program designed for families who need financial help buying food. Consumers used to pay with food stamps but now use reloadable EBT debit cards. Although SNAP is part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the program itself is administered at the state level.
Under the SNAP Restaurant Meals Program, qualified SNAP recipients can purchase food at SNAP authorized restaurants using their EBT cards, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture website. Participating restaurants must offer meals at discount prices. In some cases, the program lets recipients buy food in the deli sections of participating grocery stores.
The idea is to help SNAP recipients get hot prepared foods at restaurants — something many are unable to do at grocery stores.

To participate in the RMP, a restaurant must be located in a state that has an RMP; get approval from the state and provide a signed agreement to the Food and Nutrition Service; and be authorized by FNS to accept SNAP benefits.
As GOBankingRates previously reported, seven states have opted into the RMP. It is widely available in Arizona and California, while five other states — Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, Rhode Island and Virginia — offer the program in select cities or counties.
New York passed a law that lets state social services agencies apply to the federal program.
If you live in one of the states that offer the RMP, make sure your local Popeye’s is one of the participating locations.

First, develop a plan (some might call it a budget), said Robert Gilliland, managing director and senior wealth adviser at Concenture Wealth Management. Take into consideration every single possible expense you anticipate after your husband dies, and account for inflation as well. You can break these expenses down into the short term, such as one to five years, the intermediate term, which would be the six- to 10-year span, and the long term, or beyond 10 years.
In 2017, business magnate Warren Buffett did something that’s somewhat unusual for him. He poured hundreds of millions of dollars into a real estate investment. Buffett has been dismissive of real estate investing in the past. He’s called it a “lousy investment” in part because real estate can be expensive to maintain. Real estate also often requires “sweat equity” or the physical effort needed to upgrade properties or simply keep them from falling into disrepair. Yet in 2017, Berkshire Hathaway
