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.

  1. I’ve relocated to Michigan and no longer need my food stamps or Medicaid in California. I applied for benefits here, but was told in order to complete my application I will need a letter stating that I no longer will be receiving benefits from California. I’ve called the Ukiah office on several occasions leaving voice mails requesting this but have still not received a letter or gotten a phone call back. I’d appreciate someone’s attention to this as soon as possible. Thank you very much.
