These "at-a-glance" SNAP benefits charts gives sample SNAP amounts for households with older adults or persons with disabilities, working families, and those receiving unemployment. We've also included a chart that helps advise older adults and persons with disabilities when claiming medical expenses as a deduction makes a difference. More information on what can be claimed for the medical expense deduction here.
These charts are intended to give advocates a quick "guestimate" on the amount of SNAP benefits typical households might receive. They are not a substitute for doing the SNAP math in individual cases.
Please note: During the COVID public health emergency, all SNAP households receive at least the maximum SNAP grant for their household size. These calculation charts are useful to determine the "regular" SNAP - they do not include the supplement. Please see MassLegalServices.org/DTA-COVID-19 to learn more.
