Determining Eligibility

For SNAP units with a qualifying member, see WAG 13-01-03-a for the special treatment of the unit's expenses.

revised textWhen determining eligibility for these units, except for categorically eligible units, only use the Net Monthly Income Standard (see WAG 13-01-01-b).  Categorically eligible units do not have to meet a net income test, but are ineligible if net income is above the level where benefits are issued.
