SNAP benefits boost will end this month

The US has various economic assistance programs with the aim of providing relief to people with limited resources. Among these is the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.

Although SNAP is a federal program, the payments are administered by the state government, which is in charge of distributing the money through an electronic benefits transfer card also known as EBT.

These cards work like any other debit card, so they can be used at retail stores, grocery stores, and even markets on wheels. They can also be used to make purchases online, as long as they are for groceries.

What is the maximum amount of SNAP benefits that can be obtained in Florida?

The amount one can receive varies, depending on the person and their economic situation. Also, since the programs are state-run, requirements can also be different depending on the state.

In the case of Florida, payment is based on monthly income and expenses. To be eligible for in-state SNAP payments, your gross monthly income must be less than or equal to 200% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL).

The FPL varies by household: for an individual, the FPL is $2,266, while for a family of four it rises to $4,626. This number changes from year to year due to inflation, which means that this level will remain in effect until October 2023.

Regarding the amount that can be received, the maximum benefit for one person is $281 per month, while the maximum for a family of four is $939. These amounts represent the maximum benefit that people belonging to the program can receive. The actual amount will depend on gross income, deductions, and the number of members in the beneficiary’s family.
