SUBJECT: MOBILE PAYMENT APPLICATIONS
Mobile payment applications have been added to the resource policies for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Temporary Assistance (TA), and MO HealthNet for the Aged, Blind & Disabled (MHABD). Consider mobile payment applications a resource when determining Child Care (CC) eligibility as well.
Mobile payment applications are tools individuals can use to pay for goods and services and also used to send money to vendors, friends and family. Money can be held within these apps, similar to a checking or savings account, therefore mobile payment applications are considered resources when determining eligibility.
Mobile payment applications include, but are not limited to:
- Google Pay
- Meta Messenger
Refer to FAMIS Resources for instructions on entry of liquid resources.
- Review this memorandum with appropriate staff.
