QUESTION-What assets does the Department of Human Services (DHS) take into account when determining eligibility for SNAP (food stamps)?

ANSWER- The DHS may ask how much liquid assets a household or family group has which includes: the amount of money in a checking account, savings account or cash in hand. A person having $25,000 or more in liquid assets might not be eligible for SNAP.

This does NOT include any assets that require paperwork or a process to obtain funds such as: a person's home, retirement accounts, Earned Income Tax Credits (EITC) etc.

Receiving SNAP will not affect any of these types of assets.
