Disabled immigrants can receive food stamps indefinitely as long as they meet qualified immigrant criteria and the other food stamp eligibility criteria. Disabled immigrants do not have to meet the five year waiting period. A disabled immigrant is one whose disability meets the food stamp definition of disabled in Section 1100.010.00.

FAMIS reads the Disabled (FMMX) screen and if a valid food stamp disabled code is entered, FAMIS passes the EU member for Non-Citizen eligibility.
