I’m on social security would I be able to apply for food I’m single?

Q) I’m on social security would I be able to apply for food I’m single I can’t work standing I need an operation on my heel I make less then 1200 a month.

A) Yes, you may be eligible for food stamps if you are on Social Security and your income is below certain limits. The exact amount you can earn and still qualify for food stamps will vary depending on your household size and state of residence. However, if you are single and your income is less than $1,200 per month, you are likely eligible for food stamps.

To apply for food stamps, you can visit your local Department of Human Services (DHS) office or apply online at www.fns.usda.gov/snap/apply. You will need to provide information about your income, expenses, and household size. Once you have submitted your application, it will be reviewed by a caseworker who will determine your eligibility.

If you are approved for food stamps, you will receive a monthly benefits card that you can use to purchase food at authorized retailers. The amount of benefits you receive will be based on your household size and income.

Food stamps can be a lifesaver for people who are struggling to make ends meet. If you are eligible, I encourage you to apply.

According to the Social Security Administration “Applications for SNAP benefits are available at any Social Security office. If you and everyone in your household are applying for or already getting SSI payments, any Social Security office will help you fill out the SNAP application and send it to the SNAP office for you.” https://www.ssa.gov/pubs/EN-05-10101.pdf
