QUESTION-Who do I have to list on the SNAP (food stamps) application?

ANSWER-ODHS will determine the eligibility based on the relationship to the people in the household, whether they purchase and prepare meals together, and the incomes and expenses for everyone in the group who is applying together.
If the applicant or someone in the family group is pregnant the pregnancy does not count as a member of the benefits group until birth.
If the applicant is age 22 or under, and lives with a parent, the Oregon Department of Human Services (ODHS) will require that they apply together as a household even if they have their own income and expenses separate and do not purchase or prepare meals together.
Parents who live apart and share custody of minors, can include children on their SNAP application if they purchase and prepare meals for those children 51% of the time or more. ODHS will typically look at whichever parent the child wakes up with and provides 3 meals per day to that child to determine with the parent which meals they feed their child. If the family absolutely cannot agree on who feeds the child more than 51% of the time, or insist that it is an equal 50/50 then neither parent would have the child on their SNAP case.
Married couples are required to apply together. Living together couples who are not legally married but have children(s) together must file as a group, as child(s) tie them together.
