Q) My daughter is 19 years old with multiple disabilities. Cannot work. Receive SSI and medicaid.
SSI check about $600.00 a month. Both parents have an income of $35,000 each. Is my daughter eligible for food stamps cause of her disability?
A) It is possible that your daughter may be eligible for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, also known as food stamps, due to her disability. In order to determine eligibility for SNAP, the household’s income and resources, as well as the individual’s disability status, are taken into consideration.
To apply for SNAP, you will need to contact your local SNAP office and provide information about your income, resources, and expenses. Your local SNAP office can provide more information about the specific documents you will need to provide and can help you complete the application process.
It’s also worth noting that certain deductions, such as for medical expenses, may be applied to your household’s income when determining SNAP eligibility, which could potentially increase your daughter’s benefit amount.
I hope this information is helpful! If you have any other questions or would like more information, please don’t hesitate to ask.
