Are Food Stamps Included As Earnings In My Disability Benefits?


No, food stamps (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP benefits) are not counted as earnings when determining your eligibility or calculating the amount of your disability benefits, including Supplemental Security Income (SSI).



SSI is a needs-based program administered by the Social Security Administration (SSA). It takes into account your income, resources, and living situation to determine your eligibility and the amount of benefits you may receive. However, SNAP benefits are considered an in-kind benefit and are not counted as income for SSI purposes.



It's important to be aware that other forms of income, such as wages, Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits, and certain other public assistance programs, may impact your eligibility for SSI or affect the amount of SSI benefits you receive. It's advisable to consult with the Social Security Administration or a knowledgeable advocate to get specific information tailored to your individual circumstances.
