Effective Dates; Initial Month SNAP Benefits


In the SNAP program:

(1)

Except as provided in section (2) of this rule, for a filing group making an initial application or applying after the end of its certification period, the effective date for starting benefits is the filing date (see OAR 461-115-0050 (When an Application Must Be Filed) and 461-115-0210 (Application Processing Time Frames; SNAP)), as long as all eligibility requirements are met on the filing date. If all eligibility requirements are not met on the filing date, the effective date is the date all eligibility requirements are met.

For migrant and seasonal farmworkers that received SNAP benefits in another state the month before applying for SNAP in Oregon, the effective date for starting benefits is the first of the month.

(3)

If a filing group is applying for benefits during the last two months of a certification period, the effective date is the first of the month following the end of the certification period, unless the filing group fails to complete the application process within the time frames listed in OAR 461-115-0210 (Application Processing Time Frames; SNAP).
