AFS Special Procedures: UpdatedDisaster SNAP – Maximum Benefit Supplement

The SNAP Emergency Allotment Supplement brings all households up to the maximum amount of SNAP benefits no matter the household circumstances. Each month a request has to be sent to FNS for Oklahoma to issue the supplement. The latest approval has been for October. This has occurred related to the COVID-19 public health emergency.

A weekly job to automatically issue the EA Supplements occurs from state office. If a client contacts you to notify that they have not received their supplement; first check the BN screen for issued supplements. The EA supplement will display with a DS (disaster) code on the BN screen.
