California’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, which provides benefits to low-income households, will finish sending out payouts in six days.
The SNAP program began delivering payments on Friday; benefits are distributed from the first to the tenth of the month. Payments are made to qualified low-income households based on their case numbers.
California recipients with case numbers ending in one, for example, received CalFresh benefits on Friday, December 1, while those with case numbers ending in two received benefits on Saturday, December 2. The payment dates will be extended until December 10, when those with case numbers ending in zero will be paid.
The actual amount of benefit received by a household is determined by numerous criteria, including household size, income limits, and extra assets. The maximum payment is $291 for a one-person home, $973 for a four-person household, and $1,751 for an eight-person household. After the eighth member, a household’s food assistance are increased by up to $219.
Every month, SNAP benefits are put onto an electronic benefits transfer card. Recipients can use the card to buy approved food items such as fruits, vegetables, bread, meat, poultry, and beverages at grocery stores. They are, however, prohibited from using SNAP funds to purchase pet food, alcohol, or home necessities such as paper and soap.
