Food Stamps Program – How to Order on a Cell Phone

Sponsored

Sometimes even with all your hard work, the ends just don’t meet. Millions of Americans have this problem every day, and because of this, there are programs in place to help. One of these programs is food stamps, also known as SNAP. 

This program allows families who are struggling to be able to have food in their cupboards. The process of application isn’t hard, but many people are unaware of how to start

So we decide to help those individuals out with a quick guide on the process. There are many options, but we wanted to focus in particular on how you can do it with just the cell phone in your pocket. 

Eligibility for Food Stamps

The first step is to determine if you are eligible for the program. More people are eligible than you think. This includes individuals, families, older people, and even those who have a job. 

Once eligibility is determined, the government program uses the household’s salary and expenses to determine who can receive the benefits. The following are the primary eligibility requirements.

  • Unemployed
  • Low income
  • Already receiving welfare or public assistance
  • Non-citizens that meet specific qualifications
  • Disable or elderly
  • Homeless

Application Options

There are many different options to apply for food stamps. You can do it in person at your local office, online, or request a paper application through the mail. 

Perhaps the easiest nowadays is online, and it can be done both on a computer as well as your smart device, including your cell phone.

The big key is to understand that each state has its own application, and so when working online, you will want to make sure you use the link for your state’s local office.

Steps for Online Application

Once you locate your state’s website, you will need to make sure you have some documents handy when filling out the application. Make sure you have your ID and proof of residence. This can be a lease agreement or a letter from your landlord.

You will also need proof of citizenship, your social security card, and financial statements (this includes a bank statement as well as paycheck stubs). If you have unearned income like child support and such, you will need to have documents signifying this. 

Other documents needed include:

  • Child care expenses
  • Medical expenses

Once you have all that, you can start the application process. The application won’t take long to fill out all that will be left is to submit it. 

Time-wise, the approval process will take different times depending on the state. If you have questions, you can check the status online or call your local office

Once you have used your cell phone to complete the online application, you may want to have the ability to manage your EBT account. One of the ways you can do this is with the Fresh EBT app. If you want to check it out, you can download it here for Android and here for iOS.

Benefits of Food Stamps

You will be delivered the approved amount onto an EBT card that will be sent to your home address once you are approved. This card will be loaded on the first of the month every month. It can be used to purchase any food items except for prepared foods, hot foods, and beers as well and hygiene products.

The person who is approved will be able to purchase all other foods. This program allows those that are struggling to be able to keep themselves and their loved ones fed. The list of foods that are accepted is created by the USDA and are considered staple foods. 

Summary

Food stamps or SNAP is a program that can be used by those that don’t make enough to ensure they have food in their kitchen. The application process is easy and can be done in many ways, including on your cell phone

You will need wi-fi, required documents at hand, and find your state’s site, but after that, the application process is not complicated. Hopefully, the information above has made your application process a little easier.
