The Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) provides states options on reporting requirements for household changes that occur after an initial or recertification interview. Missouri has selected the option of simplified reporting. Effective May 1, 2010, all Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) households are subject to the simplified reporting rules. Following the initial or recertification application interview, the only changes required to be reported by the household are when:
- gross monthly income exceeds 130% of poverty;
- there is a reduction in the number of hours worked by an individual subject to the 18 through 49 year old (ABAWD) work requirements;
- lottery or gambling winnings are $3,500 or more.
