When u get a settlement from car wreck will it affect your food stamp
Generally food stamps and SSI are need based programs. Therefore any amount of income or assets likely will affect these benefits-either reducing them or terminating them. If you are receiving SSDI (Social Security disability insurance benefits)-those would not be affected by any amount of settlement.
SSDI will not be affected by a settlement. Both SSI and food stamps are based on financial hardship and may be eliminated depending on the amount of that settlement.
