Q) I am disabled and want to qualify for food stamps
A) If you are disabled you may qualify for SNAP (food stamp) benefits if you have limited income and resources, you may receive food stamps under SNAP Program. If your income and resources are too great, you will not be eligible for SNAP benefits even if you are receiving SSDI. SNAP does, however, have some special rules for people who are disabled. If you are receiving SSDI, you will be considered disabled for purposes of SNAP, and you may be able to deduct some of your medical expenses from your income. For more about SNAP, the SNAP eligibility criteria, and how to apply for food stamps, see the SNAP website at USDA.
