A) The eligibility for SNAP benefits is based on several factors including household size, income, expenses, and other criteria. The gross income limits for SNAP benefits vary by state, and they also take into account deductions and exemptions that may apply to your household.
Therefore, it’s hard to determine your eligibility for SNAP benefits without knowing all the details about your household income and expenses. You can use a pre-screening tool available on the USDA’s SNAP website to see if you might be eligible based on the information you provide.
In general, even if you exceed the gross income limit by a small amount, you may still be eligible for SNAP benefits if you have certain deductions or exemptions. Therefore, it’s recommended that you apply for SNAP benefits to get a definitive answer on your eligibility.

Before you begin, you may want to look up the amounts of your earnings, rent or mortgage, utility bills, child support, day care expenses, medical bills (if you are 60 or older, or disable), child support payments or SSI, social security or VA payments. Please note that if you live in California and receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits because special rules may apply you may not be eligible for SNAP. For more information, you should contact your county assistance office.
