Who cannot get food stamp benefits?
Some individuals will be ineligible for food stamp benefits. For example, able-bodied adults without dependent children who are not employed or who are not participating in a work program will be ineligible for benefits after receiving 3 months of benefits in any 3-year period, unless the individual is residing in a county that is currently waived from this work requirement or the individual becomes employed or participates in a work program. Individuals who are required to work but have failed to comply with the work program are ineligible.
