A SNAP unit in EZ REDE status must report when their income exceeds their Gross Income Standard. They must report the change by the 10th day of the calendar month after the calendar month that income exceeded the Gross Income limit. For example, gross income exceeded the limit for 09/09 the unit must report the change by 10/10/09.

When the unit reports a change, review the effect of the change on the unit's eligibility and benefit amount. For income-related changes, consider the date the first payment is received (as a result of the change) as the date the client learned about the change.

new textIf the income belongs to a new member, the unit must report if the income of all those who are in the unit exceeds the Gross Income limit for the unit size that the unit was originally notified.

When the number in the SNAP unit changes, the Redetermination Fact Sheet is centrally sent telling the unit its new Gross Income Standard for reporting changes of income for SNAP.

Act on a reported change as follows:

  • Change results in a decrease or ineligibility: see PM 18-04-10.
  • Change results in an increase in benefits not due to a new unit member: see PM 18-04-08.

    NOTE: For TANF cash benefits, when the ending of employment is reported, see PM 10-02-04-c

  • Change due to adding a new unit member: see PM 18-04-07.

If a reported change makes a case exempt from EZ REDE, remove the case from EZ REDE status at the next REDE.
