got temporary guardianship … can we apply for food stamp

Q) I just got temporary guardianship for the next 5 months on our grandchildren. My question is can we apply for food stamp since they are in our care? The parents were getting food stamps monthly counting the grandchildren, they don’t have their children at this time. Don’t know where to start but we are needing help with food.

A) When your house hold size has changed you can apply for a review of your food stamp benefits. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, it may be easier for you and your family to get food stamps and take part in meal programs. Contact your state’s social services agency to see if you’re eligible.

During the pandemic:

  • Food stamp (SNAP) recipients may receive additional funding.
  • Parents can pick up school meals for their kids to eat at home.
  • People can enroll in food programs remotely rather than in person. This applies to programs for pregnant women, families, seniors, and people with disabilities.

Applying for Food Stamp or SNAP benefits

To apply for Food Stamp or SNAP benefits contact your local (SNAP) food stamp office office. Each State program has their own application form. If your State’s form is not on the web yet, you may need to contact your local food stamp office to request one.

  1. Why aren’t retained health insurance from previous employment considered a debt just as a house payment is considered a debt? Would Oklahoma rather force applicants to drop their health insurance and use state offered health insurance to qualify for SNAP? Instead of allowing them to retain the health benefits they choose to retain and therefore their health insurance is a monthly debt just the same as rent or a car payment?
