DES Disability Tracking Forms from TAFDC and EAEDC programs qualify recipients as disabled under the Food Stamp rules if they say that the person meets or equals SSI criteria (codes 100 and 110). This can result in waived face to face interview requirement, no gross income test, uncapped shelter deduction, work requirement exemmption, and different income standards.
