NYS has released GIS 12TA/DC001 informing food stamp offices across the state that the resource limit for food stamp families with an elderly or disabled member has increased starting October 1, 20011. The limit is now set at $3,250 up from the previous limit of $3,000.
This new increase in the resource limit only affects families with a senior or disabled member who:
- are NOT categorically eligible for the food stamp program and,
- are currently applying for food stamp benefits, or
- applied between October 1, 2011 and January 3, 2012.
