Q) If my husband is not my 20 year Olds bialogical father does his income still have to be counted
A) If your husband is not the biological father of your 20-year-old child, his income does not have to be counted in determining the eligibility for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits for your child.
In SNAP, eligibility and benefit amounts are based on the household’s income and resources. A household is defined as a person or a group of people who live together and buy food and prepare meals together. If your child is not included in your household, your husband’s income does not have to be counted when determining your child’s eligibility and benefit amount.
However, if your husband provides financial support to your child, such as paying for housing, utilities, or other expenses, that support may be counted as income to your child and may affect their eligibility for SNAP benefits.
It’s important to report all sources of income and changes in household composition promptly to the SNAP agency to ensure that you are receiving the correct benefit amount and to avoid potential overpayments or underpayments.
