Household assignment

Each household is an applicant household when they first apply for benefits. The household remains an applicant household until the worker certifies the SNAP benefit and the system creates the approval notice.

At certification, the household changes into an annual reporting household, a change reporting household, or a semi-annual reporting household.

  • A household becomes an annual reporting household when there is no earned income and every adult in the household is elderly or has a disability.

  • A household becomes a semi-annual reporting household when it does not fall into either of the other two household categories.
