Question: What happens during the Food Stamps Interview?

The food stamps case worker will ask questions about your household composition, income, resources, and other pertinent information needed to determine your food stamps eligibility. You will be given or mailed a form listing all needed information with a due date. The information should be received by the food stamps case worker on or before that date. You will be mailed a notice regarding your eligibility after your case has been processed and your eligibility has been determined.

Sample Food Stamps Interview Questions:

  • Are you currently working now?
  • How much do you make at your job? Is the amount weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly?
  • How many people are in your household?
  • How much do you pay for your housing?  Do you owe the house? Do you rent?

The notice lists your appeal rights if you do not agree with the decision. Generally, you have about 30 days to appeal your Food Stamps case.
