To determine the amount of benefits to be provided, complete the SNAP Eligibility Work Sheet (Form 683A), if changes occur in housing costs and other items, and the SNAP Calculation Sheet (Form 683B).
If a change is reported that would result in an increase in benefits, increase SNAP benefits for the fiscal month following the fiscal month the change is reported.
Issue supplemental Mercury benefits if the submittal date has already passed for the month when the change is to take effect.
