Georgia Food Stamps Income Restriction

The Georgia state grocery stamp income limit is one of the most important criteria you must meet in order to be eligible for food stamp benefits (SNAP benefits) in the state of Georgia. The income limit includes both gross income and net income. If a household has an elderly person, or a person receiving certain disability payments, all they need to do is pass the net income test.

To determine the income eligibility standards for SNAP benefits, the monthly gross income limits are set at 130% of the poverty line for the household size. While the monthly net income limits are set at 100% poverty.

What does gross and net income mean?

Gross income means the total, non-excluded income of a household before any deductions are made. Net income means gross income minus allowable deductions.

Conclusion

The grocery stamp income limit test is required for all households applying for grocery stamps, unless all members receive TANF, SSI, or some other form of cash assistance from the federal government or your state.

In addition, most households must pass both the gross and net income limit tests, but a household with an elderly person or someone receiving certain types of disability benefits only needs to pass the net income test.

If your household income is above the limits below, you will not be eligible for food aid.
