Q) I am wondering why I am no longer receiving SNAP/Food assistance for me and my children? I have not received anything since June.
A) There could be several reasons why you are no longer receiving SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) benefits for you and your children.
- One possibility is that your benefits have expired. SNAP benefits are typically provided on a temporary basis and may need to be renewed periodically.
- Another possibility is that your income or household circumstances have changed, making you no longer eligible for the benefits.
- It’s also possible that there was an error in your application or a problem with your benefits, such as a missed recertification deadline or a miscalculation of your benefits.
- The state or organization in charge of the program may have also made changes that affected your benefits.
It’s important to contact your state’s SNAP agency to inquire about the specific reason why you are no longer receiving benefits and to find out what steps you need to take to resolve the issue. They will be able to provide you with more information about why your SNAP benefits were discontinued and what you need to do to regain eligibility.
You can also check if you are eligible for other assistance programs like WIC, TANF, or school lunch programs.
It’s important to do this as soon as possible to avoid any interruptions in your benefits and to ensure that you and your children have enough food to eat.
