The following people living together must be included in the same SNAP Household:
If parents and their children under age 22 living in the same dwelling are claiming to be living separately, only grant separate SNAP household status if the living quarters are totally separate with no shared living space.
The living quarters are considered separate even if there is a shared entrance (e.g., a hallway or stairway).
