Job Quit by Applicants; SNAP


An applicant who is required to meet the SNAP employment and training requirements in OAR 461-130-0305 (General Provisions; Employment Programs) and 461-130-0315 (Requirements for Mandatory Employment Program Clients; Pre-TANF, REF, SNAP, TANF), who voluntarily and without good cause (see OAR 461-130-0327 (Good Cause)) quits a job or reduces the weekly number of hours of work to below 30, is ineligible for SNAP benefits.


For purposes of this rule, an individual quits a job upon quitting a job of at least 30 hours a week or the equivalent of 30 hours a week multiplied by the federal minimum wage.


The period of ineligibility is determined as follows. If the filing date falls within the 30-day period following a job quit or work reduction described in sections (1) and (2) of this rule, the person who quit the job or reduced work hours will be ineligible during the month in which the filing date falls and for the appropriate disqualification of one, three or six calendar months (see OAR 461-130-0330 (Disqualifications; Pre-TANF, REF, SNAP, TANF)).
