I was just released from prison… Wanted to see if I could qualify for food stamps and health insurance?

Q) I was just released from prison after doing ten years. Having a hard time want to work but don’t have birth certificate social security card or state I’d. Waiting on birth certificate to come in mail. Wanted to see if I could qualify for food stamps and health insurance? Could you please help me?

A) You do qualify for food stamps and Medicaid after being released from prison. Whether you are convicted or not and are incarcerated or released from incarceration, you can always sign up for your state’s Medicaid plan. You just can’t receive medicaid medical care, if you have been convicted and in confinement except for medicaid medical treatment needed outside of confinement.

  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.
