ATTENTION SNAP HOUSEHOLDS
CHANGES TO NOVEMBER 1, 2013 BENEFITS


Why are my benefits changing?

Your benefits will change because a law called the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) raised SNAP benefits to help people affected by the recession and the part of the law that raised SNAP benefits is ending October 31, 2013.

When are my benefits changing?

On November 1, your benefits will go down due to the end of the extra benefits provided by the 2009 law.

How much are my benefits going down on November 1, 2013?

Your benefits depend on many things like income, household size and expenses. So it is hard to say exactly how your benefits will change. If you live in a household of 4 and nothing else changes, your benefit would go down $36.
