Certification Renewals (CRs)
Every type of SNAP household undergoes the certification renewal process. Certification renewals happen at the end of the eligibility period.
- Annual Reporting Household – 24th month
- Semi-annual Reporting Household – 12th month
- ABAWD households – every 3 or 4 months
- Households with different cert periods – at the last month of the cert period
This also means that you complete the application process and approve or deny applications for the CR. You cannot continue benefits to a household beyond the certification period until you recertify the household.
