Maryland Program Description
Food stamps help low-income households buy the food they need for good health and are used like cash to buy food. In Maryland, food stamp benefits are accessed through an Electronic Benefits Transfer System. There are several eligibility requirements that include resource and income limits. Households may have up to $2,000 in countable resources, which includes a bank account. If a member of the household is 60 or older, a person with disability, countable resources increase to $3,000.
Most households must meet a gross income test (130 percent of poverty). If the household includes an elderly person or a person receiving disability benefits, only the "net test" must be met.
Possible deductions from gross income include: 20 percent of earned income, a standard deduction according to household size; a dependent-care deduction; any medical expenses in excess of $35 for elderly or disabled members; housing and legally owed and paid child support.
In order to qualify for this benefit program, you must be a resident of the State of Maryland, a US national, citizen or permanent resident in need of health care/insurance assistance, whose financial situation would be characterized as low income or very low income. You must also be either pregnant, have a child(ren) with a disability, or be responsible for children under 19 years of age.
