Can I get more SNAP benefits if I already receive benefits?

unemployed_questionQ) Can I get more SNAP benefits if I already receive benefits?

A) Only if your are eligible for more benefits. If you are already a SNAP recipient, you cannot receive additional benefits unless you are eligible for more benefits. The amount you receive each month depends on things like the number of people in your household, income, and resources (cash, bank accounts, etc…). Households are expected to spend some of their income on food. You can find more information about how benefits are calculated here.

If you think there has been a mistake with your case and your benefit amount is incorrect, you have the right to a hearing. During the hearing, a person not involved with your case with review it. S/he will review the facts fairly and fix any mistakes. To ask for a hearing, you can go to your local office, call the office, or send a written request.

  1. To apply for food stamp benefits, or for information about the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), contact your local SNAP office. You can find local offices and each State’s application on the USDA national map. Local offices are also listed in the State or local government pages of the telephone book. The office should be listed under “Food Stamps,” “Social Services,” “Human Services,” “Public Assistance,” or a similar title. You can also call your State’s SNAP hotline numbers. Most are toll-free numbers.

    Each State has its own application form. If your State’s form is not on the web yet, you’ll need to contact your local SNAP office to request one. Please don’t call USDA or HHS headquarters as only your State accepts applications and determines eligibility.
