Our aunt passed away could her children utilized the food stamps..

Q) Our aunt passed away on July 2 2021 could her children still utilized the food stamps for this month.

A) Yes, the children of your aunt who passed away on July 2, 2021 can still utilize the food stamps for this month.

The Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) allows for food stamps to be used by the eligible household members even if the head of household has passed away. The FNS defines an eligible household member as any person who is a member of the household and is under age 18, or age 18 or over and a member of the household who is disabled or blind.

To continue using the food stamps, the children of your aunt will need to contact their local food stamps office and provide documentation of the death of their aunt. The food stamps office will then update the household information and continue issuing food stamps to the eligible household members.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

NOTE: If one member of your household has died, that means that person’s income is no longer part of the household resources, but also that person is no longer in need of food stamp benefits. Therefore the death will alter the calculation of your benefits. Once your benefits are recalculated to take account of your changed household circumstances, you could be asked to repay any excess benefits that you claimed in the past year. In the event that your benefit level actually went up, this will not be an issue, but if you did receive additional benefits in error you will need to work out with your local state office how you plan to repay the amount. https://www.sapling.com/8028387/legal-receive-her-food-stamps
