Do I Qualify for Food Stamps?
How many people are in your household? To be eligible for SNAP, first figure out the total number of people in your household — the total household income must be below a certain number based on the number of people in the household.
What are your resources? According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, households may have $2,250 in countable resources or assets — that can include a bank account, but does not include benefits from SSI, TANF or any pension plans. Households may also have $3,500 in countable resources if at least one person is over the age of 60 or is disabled.
What is your gross monthly income? The maximum gross monthly income is 130 percent of the federal poverty level, and the maximum net monthly income is 100 percent of the federal poverty level. For instance, if your household only consists of one person, then the gross monthly income to be eligible for SNAP is $1,287 (net $990). For two people, gross is $1,726, net is $1,335. The net income is determined by subtracting all acceptable deductions from your gross income.
What does your employment look like? There are employment requirements, which include not intentionally leaving a job or reducing hours to qualify. They do not apply to everyone, and each state can use these as guidelines.
Are you unemployed? You must be registered to work, and you must also take a job if offered. Depending on the state, you might also be asked to participate in state-run employment and training programs.
Are you unemployed and considered an “Able-Bodied Adults without Dependents (ABAWDs)? If so, you are limited to three months of benefits over the course of 36 months unless it’s proved that you are working or participating in education or training activities at least 80 hours per month, or participating in a workforce program.
Are you elderly, disabled, pregnant or under the age of 18? If so, you might be the exception to employment requirements.
Are you a non-citizen? Non-citizens can apply for SNAP benefits if they are lawfully admitted for permanent residence, asylees, parolees, deportation withhold status, conditional entrants, Cuban or Haitian entrants, battered non-citizens, refugees, trafficking victims, Iraqi or Afghan special immigrants, Hmong or Highland Laotian tribal members, or certain American Indians born abroad.

  1. I mailed in my every 4 months renewal application not once but twice to Jonesboro ar Department of Health. The end of last year and when they mail you a renewal application a person fills it out, then mails it back to them, and then a Department of Health worker will mail you a phone interview date so they can call you and interview you to continue furthering your ebt elibilty. So when I didn’t receive another letter stating the Date and Time of my interview on the phone from them after a week, I called the Jonesboro office and asked if they received my application, the lady said No but due to Thanksgiving being a holiday I would give it a few days I mailed it a week before Thanksgiving, anyways a week later I still have not received nothing so again I called up there and asked them if they received my application yet. Told them I had called before asking the same ? And what the worker had said, the lady go No we haven’t gotten it, and she said I had til the 15th of December to have it turned it that she couldn’t control the mail, okay I know that. I asked for her to please mail me another renewal form and I didn’t get one still, it should take 2 days at most to get the mail from Jonesboro to where I live. So I call again and tell the lady this whole story and asked to please mail me a renewal letter that I didn’t want to not get my benefits due to them not receiving my renewal form if benifits she said that I will be fine she would take note I have been calling the office keeping in touch with them about my renewal letter. Well today I call after mailing my renewal again the lady said my case has been closed and I would have to reapply. That I didn’t sign my application. WHAT. I MEAN I AM BEYOND ANNOYED WITH JONESBORO DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH WORKERS YOU PEOPLE ARE BIT THERE JUST TO GET A PAYCHECK. IT SEEMS TO ME, BC OF HOW YOU ACT ON THE PHONE AND IN PERSON WITH PEOPLE. UNPROFESSIONAL AND UNCARING PEOPLE.NOT ALL OF THEM BUT HERE LATELY YES AND MY FRIEND WRNT THROUGH THE SAME THING WITH THEM 6 MONTHS AGO.
