In your state, the average household that includes an older adult gets

$110/month

in SNAP benefits. You could get more or less depending on your income and household size.

This program gives you a special debit card with money on it to help you buy food. The program adds money to your card every month. The amount of money you get may depend on three things:

  • Money you get from your job or a program like Social Security
  • How many people live with you
  • Where you live

You can use the card at most grocery stores, certain senior centers, and some meal delivery services such as Meals on Wheels. 


How do I apply?

To apply, you can print an application to mail to your local office. You can also apply online. Call your State Hotline at 800-403-0864 to see if you can apply by phone.
