Social Security pays benefits not only to people retired from the work force, but also their surviving dependents following the person’s death and persons who become disabled and cannot work. Knowing the eligibility requirements can help you plan for retirement or in case accident, illness, or death occurs.
SNAP offers nutrition assistance to millions of eligible, low-income individuals and families and provides economic benefits to communities. SNAP is the largest program in the domestic hunger safety net. The Food and Nutrition Service works with State agencies, nutrition educators, and neighborhood and faith-based organizations to ensure that those eligible for nutrition assistance can make informed decisions about applying for the program and can access benefits.
