What keeps unqualified people from getting SNAP benefits?

unemployed_questionQ) What keeps unqualified people from getting SNAP benefits?

A) As part of the commitment to program integrity, USDA works closely with the states to ensure they issue their benefits correctly. State workers carefully evaluate each application to determine eligibility and the appropriate level of benefits. USDA monitors the accuracy of eligibility and benefit determinations.




States that fail to meet standards for issuing their SNAP benefits correctly can be sanctioned by USDA and those exceeding the standard for payment accuracy can be eligible for additional funding support. People who receive SNAP benefits in error must repay any benefits for which they did not qualify.

If you’re under the age of 18 and living with your family, then your family has the right to apply for food stamps if the household income falls below the program poverty wage limit.
