SNAP Benefits

As An AARP member for 13 years, AARP is nothing more than marketing products toward older adults ( as you probably know)

I am using this forum to get older adults to address food insecurity.  With the end of the special pandemic funds my SNAP went from 501/month to 27. I urge all who read this to contact their state and congressional reps to repair this problem.  I am in trouble for feeding myself and my wife.

Also I already have a part time job that a 69 can possibly find.


Please act now to force the government to take care of Elders.


Thank you

That’s a big dive - Seems out of proportion since there was supposed to be a 25% increase + the Thrift Food Plan - those are things that happened irregardless of the pandemic extra funding.  yes the pandemic extra funding went away the first part of March 2023 - but these other programs and increases should have kicked in.  


Here is a detailed review of how the post-pandemic SNAP should work along with state contact.

For a drop that much in SNAP benefits, it sounds like you and wife maybe close to the eligibility limits.  OR maybe your family composition changed in the last few years.
