OK, so I'm apply for SNAP in NYS. I heard that they provide money for utilites and stuff, but I only want Food Stamps. Can I tell the Dept. of Social Services about my needs?

Thanks

There is a application just for food stamps only. But they do try to see what else you qualify for too. Did you apply for emergency food stamps or just fill out an application?

I only filled out an application online through mybenefits.ny.gov

I would call and ask for expidited food stamps and ask how long it takes too. I would think an application covers everything so you would need to tell them only Food Stamps is what you need.

Padysmomy is right. But if you are eligible for anything else I would except it if I were you.

Use all that you need!! It is there for times of need. Do not let anyone make you feel ashamed.

If you're eligible for it, use it.

Being approved for Snap Cash Benefits isn't automatic- that's another thing entirely, it just goes on the same card.

I just wanna applaud you.... you are doing what YOU NEED not what you CAN GET... so many people just take the other help just because. I say if you can get by on your own you should... Thank GOD there is ONE sensible person on the system! <3
