Elderly or Disabled Clients


In the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), an elderly or disabled person is entitled to have SNAP eligibility determined under special regulations.

To be considered elderly in SNAP, a client must be at least 60 years of age.

To be considered disabled in SNAP, a client must meet one of the requirements listed in the section entitled SNAP Disability Requirements and Verifications.

The special regulations for SNAP eligibility determination for the elderly and disabled are as follows:




NPA SNAP households that consist solely of elderly (age 60 or over) or disabled clients whose income exceeds the 200% gross income standard are subject to the maximum asset limit of $3,500.
