Alaska Quest Card

Alaska contracts with JPMorgan Electronic Financial Services (EFS) to maintain Alaska Quest Card accounts. JPMorgan EFS provides an Internet site Quest Card holders can use to access their accounts. Card holders can use this secure site to check their Quest card account activity, download an account statement and change their PIN.

The Division of Public Assistance issues Food Stamps and other benefits to low-income households through the Alaska Quest card. The Quest card is an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card that can be used to purchase eligible food and other items at grocery stores and Farmer's Markets.

The Alaska Food Stamp Program provides food benefits to low-income households to buy food products from authorized stores and Farmer's Markets statewide. Learn more about the Food Stamp Program.
