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.

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.
