Public Benefits


Numerous government programs provide financial support for individuals and families in a variety of ways.  The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP (formerly knows as food stamps) ensures access to food, for example.  Other examples are cash assistance, child care vouchers, social security benefits and veteran benefits.  All of these programs are governed by complicated Administrative Rules the say who is eligible for benefits, how much the person can get, what the person is required to do, and under what circumstances the benefits can be cut off.  If benefits are stopped, a person has the right to request a hearing.  If the request for a hearing is made timely, benefits usually continue until a decision is made.
