MLRI flier on gig workers and SNAP translated

MLRI SNAP Outreach Flier for Rideshare, Delivery, and other Gig Workers - in English, Spanish, and Portuguese

We’ve received a number of questions about how self-employed individuals should report and verify their income when they apply SNAP benefits.  Rideshare and delivery workers include drivers with companies like Uber, Lyft, InstaCart, DoorDash, and app-based companies. Most drivers with these app-based companies are independent contractors, which means they are considered self-employed for SNAP and other means-tested benefits (like school meals, WIC, fuel assistance). 
MLRI has translated our FAQ detailing how these rideshare, delivery, and gig workers can report their income and claim eligible business expenses to qualify for and maximize their SNAP benefits. Click here to view and download the flier in English, Spanish, and Portuguese!
Please share widely, and let us know if you see any issues with self-employed gig workers applying for SNAP benefits!
