Q) Can I apply for SNAP without having a phone? I don’t have any money to buy one. Thank you.
A) Yes, it is possible to apply for SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), also known as food stamps, without having a phone. You can apply online through your state’s SNAP website, or in person at your local SNAP office.
If you apply online, you can use a computer at a public library or a friend’s house to complete the application. If you prefer to apply in person, you can visit your local SNAP office during their regular business hours. You can find the location of your local SNAP office by visiting the USDA’s SNAP office locator tool online.
When you apply, you’ll need to provide some personal information and documents, such as proof of identity, income, and expenses. It’s important to provide accurate and complete information, as this will help ensure that you receive the correct amount of benefits.
If you have any questions or need assistance with the application process, you can contact your local SNAP office or the USDA National Hunger Hotline at 1-866-3-HUNGRY (1-866-348-6479) for help.
I hope this information is helpful, and I wish you the best of luck in your SNAP application.
You do not need to have a phone in order to apply for SNAP. You may email or fax your application, or apply online. Your Department of Transitional Assistance (DTA) caseworker will make contact with you. Be sure to indicate in your application that you do not have a phone. They should contact you by post mail.
