This Pre-Screening Tool can be used to determine if you may be eligible to receive SNAP benefits (Food Stamps). This Pre-Screening Tool is not an application for SNAP. An application for SNAP benefits must be made at your local SNAP Office. Click here to find the office that serves your area.
Before you begin, you may want to look up the amounts of your earnings, rent or mortgage, utility bills, child support, day care expenses, medical bills (if you are 60 or older, or disable), child support payments or SSI, social security or VA payments. Please note that if you live in California and receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits because special rules may apply you may not be eligible for SNAP. For more information, you should contact your county assistance office.
