Massachusetts SNAP Calculators


Three ways to do the SNAP math for MA residents!

1. Online SNAP calculator:

Here is a link to an online SNAP calculator that you can use right from your browser or mobile device, without downloading anything! 

2. SNAP Excel calculator:

You can download our Excel calculator to estimate the amount of benefits. This calculator is designed for people who are familiar with Excel and the SNAP rules. 

It is current as of February 1, 2024. It does not apply to households with a member who has been sanctioned due to an Intentional Program Violation. To learn more about these situations, review the MLRI SNAP Advocacy Guide. See also the notes included in the excel to ensure accuracy.  

3. SNAP Paper Worksheet PDF: 

The SNAP calculation worksheet is a one page worksheet for manual calculations. It is current as of October 1, 2023. 

NOTE: These calculators and worksheet are intended as a convenience tool only and will result in an estimate of benefit amounts; DTA makes the final determination of eligibility and benefits amount.

Finally, if you or your client have income from a rental property, we also have an excel worksheet that you can download to help calculate the net income for SNAP purposes. Note that the figures in this excel worksheet are out of date and are not updated! This excel only provides an example of how to evaluate the math.
