Q) Is my SSI counted as income when applying for SNAP benefits? Thgere are 2 people in my household. I receive the SSI and my husband has no income.
A) Under Federal law, all income is counted to determine eligibility for SNAP unless it is explicitly excluded. For SNAP purposes, “income” includes both earned income such as wages and unearned income such as Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and veterans, disability, and death benefits.
