Florida Food Stamp Calculator

Eligibility requirements for the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP), also known as food stamps are set by the United States Department of Agriculture, at the federal level. But individuals must apply through their states. In the state of Florida, the program is administered by the Florida Department of Children and Families under the the ACCESS Florida Program. Eligibility for Food Stamps depends on things like the number of people in your household, income, and resources (cash, bank accounts, etc.). Income includes money earned from work. It also includes benefits like Social Security, unemployment, and SSI.

If you think you are eligible for Florida Food Assistance, you can use the pre-screening tool, also called the Food Stamps Calculator to determine if you qualify. Please note that the pre-screening tool is not an application for SNAP benefits. The Food Stamps program has many rules, and the calculator covers most of the rules, but not all of them. You need to apply to actually receive benefits and confirm the actual amount that you qualify for Рsince it is possible that the actual amount you may be eligible for is different from what the calculator tells you.

In Florida, the pre-screening tool (the ACCESS Florida Pre-screening Tool) is used to screen for the following:

  • Help buying food
  • Cash Assistance
  • Low or no cost health care
  • Help paying Medicare premiums

So, when you answer the questions asked, you are being screened for eligibility for Food Assistance, Cash Assistance, Low or no cost health care, and help paying Medicare premiums. You should take the time and answer the questions accurately and truthfully. You may just want to apply for Florida Food Stamps but your household situation may qualify you for other benefits.

    I am unemployed. I was supposed to fill out a form for loss of income. I have not had a job for many years. There is no way I could get in touch with past employers since they are no longer at the places where I used to work.
