Based on the information you gave, your estimated food stamp allotment is $595 per month. This amount is only an estimate--there is no guarantee that you will receive this amount. Below is a detailed explanation of how this number was calculated. You can review it to make sure all the information is correct. If anything doesn't look right, you can return to the interview and correct or change an amount to see if it changes your Food Stamp amount. If you said someone in your household is not eligible to get food stamps, that person will not be counted as part of the Food Stamps household. This means when DHHS determines eligibility and benefit amount, the ineligible person will not be counted. However, DHHS may count this person’s income, which is why we asked about it and why it’s used in this calculation. You can apply for food stamps and other benefits online through
