Households containing an individual age 60 or over, or one
who is permanently disabled, do not have to meet the gross monthly income test.
If your household has little or no money and requires help right away, you may be able to receive “expedited” benefits to meet your food needs under SNAP. You must be interviewed first in order to determine eligibility. If you qualify, you will receive your initial benefit within five days of application. You will still have to complete the eligibility process and supply all necessary and requested documentation within 30 days.
