Many unemployed SNAP recipients ages 18 to 49 are at risk of losing their SNAP benefits due to a SNAP rule that went into effect on January 1, 2016. The rule, which applies to able-bodied adults without dependents (ABAWDs), limits SNAP eligibility to three months for these individuals unless they live in a waived area, meet an exception, or meet work requirements. In May, termination notices went out to more than 10,000 unemployed SNAP recipients in NYS.
