QUESTION- If a person's unemployment benefits ended, do they need to provide proof of this to the Oregon Department of Human Services (ODHS) to apply for SNAP or will receiving unemployment affect the SNAP benefits?

-A letter or other proof that unemployment benefits have ended may be helpful, however, ODHS may have other means to verify if a person is receiving unemployment benefits or if a person's unemployment benefits have expired.
-Unemployment benefits count as unearned income and could affect the eligibility to receive SNAP benefits. Failure to report unemployment benefits could lead to cancellation or having to pay back benefits.
-The DHS caseworker will explain if receiving unemployment benefits affects the benefits during the interview.
