Income is money received in exchange for work performed, from the sale of goods or services, or as a benefit. Certain income is exempt and does not affect eligibility, while other income is nonexempt and affects eligibility.
All income must be verified and the amount and source documented in the case record.
When determining eligibility, use only nonexempt income currently available to meet the SNAP unit's needs. When the SNAP unit's available nonexempt income meets their needs, the unit is ineligible for SNAP benefits.
The receipt of SNAP benefits is not income and does not reduce the amount of benefits received from other public assistance programs.
