Q) I have someone staying with me temporarily. Do I have to report that?
A) Yes, you should report someone staying with you temporarily. This is because the government needs to know how many people are living in your household so that they can calculate your food stamp benefits accurately.
You can report someone staying with you temporarily by contacting your local food stamp office. You can find the contact information for your local food stamp office on the USDA website.
When you contact your local food stamp office, be sure to provide the following information:
- The name of the person staying with you
- The relationship of the person staying with you to you
- The start and end dates of the person’s stay
Your local food stamp office will update your benefits accordingly.
Here are some of the benefits of reporting someone staying with you temporarily:
- You will receive the correct amount of food stamp benefits.
- You will avoid any penalties for not reporting someone staying with you.
- You will be helping to ensure that the food stamp program is fair to everyone.
I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
