SUBJECT: HOURLY AND PIECEWORK FOR SUPPLEMENTAL NUTRITION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (SNAP)
MANUAL REVISION #
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Policy Manual section 1102.020.00 Verification Required at Recertification has been updated to remove fluctuating hourly and piecework as an example of questionable information.
Fluctuating hourly and piecework is not questionable unless there are inconsistencies.
EXAMPLE: Allan works at a factory and is paid by piecework. He is paid $10 per part/piece he assembles. Allan typically assembles 8-12 parts/pieces during a day of work and works 5 days a week. A conversation with Allan tells us that this is normal and is due to demands of the product. Allan’s work history shows varying income consistent with his statement. This income is not questionable.
- Review this memorandum with appropriate staff.
