Would I have to report any class-action lawsuit settlement money when applying for food stamp?

Q) Would I have to report any class-action lawsuit settlement money if it was for a physical injury? Is there a limit on the cash that’s in the bank acct., if it’s from the physical injury lawsuit,if I’m 60 yrs.old, and, disabled? How does all of that work?

A) Food Stamp eligibility is based primarily on household income and certain expenses. Most applicants will not be asked for proof of money in the bank or other resources. Learn more and see if you are eligible by calling The FoodSource Hotline at 1-800-645-8333.

To apply for benefits or for more information about SNAP, contact your local SNAP office. The local office may be listed under “Human Resources,” “Social Services,” “Food Stamps” or Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT)” in the State or local government pages of the telephone directory. You may also call SNAP’s toll free line at 1-800-221-5689, or your State’s toll free information line or go to your State’s web site. Many States have a locator on the web site that will tell you where the nearest office is. You can use our online pre-screening tool to find out if you might be eligible for SNAP benefits and how much you might receive in benefits. The pre-screening tool is private and easy-to-use. It is available in English and Spanish. If the pre-screening tool says you may be eligible for SNAP benefits, you still need to fill out an application and submit it to your local SNAP office if you want to apply for SNAP benefits.

  1. To apply for food stamp benefits, or for information about the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), contact your local SNAP office. You can find local offices and each State’s application on the USDA national map. Local offices are also listed in the State or local government pages of the telephone book. The office should be listed under “Food Stamps,” “Social Services,” “Human Services,” “Public Assistance,” or a similar title. You can also call your State’s SNAP hotline numbers. Most are toll-free numbers.

    Each State has its own application form. If your State’s form is not on the web yet, you’ll need to contact your local SNAP office to request one. Please don’t call USDA or HHS headquarters as only your State accepts applications and determines eligibility.
