You can ask the Welfare Office for a fair
hearing in writing, in person, or telephone. The office will provide you information about the hearing rules.
- You can have a friend, relative or anyone else help you prepare for and attend the hearing with you.
- In some cases, you can continue to receive SNAP benefits without change while awaiting the hearing decision.
- If the hearing officer determines the welfare office took the correct action, you will be required to repay the value of any SNAP benefits
you were NOT entitled to.
- If the hearing officer determines the welfare office
took incorrect action(s), you will continue to receive or begin to
receive the correct amount of
SNAP benefits and the amount of any SNAP benefits you had a right
to receive will be provided to you.
