SNAP/Food Stamps Eligibility and Benefits for Families with No Children and Individuals

 

Note

If you are disabled or older than 60, you do not have a gross income limit for SNAP/Food Stamps. DTA subtracts all of your deductions (shelter costs, medical costs, etc.) from your income to get the net income amount they use to calculate your SNAP/Food Stamps.  If you are disabled or you are a senior, you might be able to get SNAP/Food Stamps even if your gross income is higher than the amount in the chart below. See the SNAP Advocacy Guide: Income Tests for more information.
