Find the food stamp office
First you should find the food stamp office that is nearest to your location. For this, you must check the government listings and look for the sections ‘human services’ or ‘social services’. After you have found the office, you must make an appointment so that you can pay a visit and present your case.
Gather all the supporting documents
You must gather all those documents which will be required to support your claim. Here, you should include a termination letter or the last drawn salary slip, social security cards of all the household members, any disabilities and the proof of the last rent paid. You might also be required to declare the assets, owned by you or other people in your household.
Take the documents to the office
After you have gathered all the documents, it is important that you should keep them in a separate folder and bring these to the food stamp office.
Be honest while answering the questions
Apart from the documents, an official will take an interview of the person that comes for seeking food stamp assistance. It is strongly suggested that you should be honest during the question answer session and do not lie at any point otherwise your application can be rejected.
Provide additional documents
At times, the food stamp office requires some additional documents to get more clarification about a particular case. Therefore, if you are asked to bring these documents, you must not delay.
