Food Stamps

Work Requirements

Losing Benefits

Voluntary Reduction of Work Hours - If you decide to work fewer hours at a job, you may no longer be allowed to receive food stamps.

Voluntary Quit- If you decide to quit a job, you may no longer receive food stamps.

People in a household must answer any questions an official asks to decide whether a person in the household is required to take part in the Food Stamp Employment and Training Program and whether the rules about voluntary reduction of work hours and voluntary quit apply to that person.

If anyone in your household refuses, without a good reason, to answer these questions, the person who is supposed to be following the work requirement will no longer be allowed to get a food stamp benefit.

Remember, you must follow all Food Stamp Work Requirements in order to keep getting food stamp benefits.  This includes doing the activities in your Family Employment Program (FEP) employment plan.
