My mother is 75, and after my father's death started collecting around $1600 a month in SS. Her property taxes alone each year take most of that money. Add payments, food, car insurance etc, and she is in the hole. I was curious as to whether she would be eligible for SNAP in NY state.
According to the "Income guidelines with Elderly" if the family size is 1 the allowed income is $1980. What I'm confused about is whether or not she counts as a family of one, since she is her own dependent.
