Example: Mrs. V's individual identification number ends with 0 (IES Individual ID # 1111111110) and 0 is considered the 10th of the month. Therefore, Mrs V's SNAP benefits will be available on the 10th day of each month. Workers can also review "regular roll availability date" on the IES Case Summary Page.
Case actions performed after cut-off will be available the following month.
