OLGT 2017-111 - SNAP – Excluding Combat Pay from Household Income


SNAP regulation mandates the exclusion of certain combat-related pay from household income. Combat pay earned by a service member while s/he is actively deployed or serving in a Federally-designated combat zone is noncountable for SNAP purposes. This allowance is usually paid in addition to the service member’s basic pay. Only the portion of a service member’s income that is available to the household may be counted for SNAP purposes. 
The purpose of this Online Guide Transmittal is to advise staff of a minor edit to the Noncountable Income page and a new Online Guide page addressing Combat Pay.
