Seniors can face many barriers to SNAP participation. The Department of Transitional Assistance (DTA) created the Senior Assistance Office to help decrease these access barriers.
The SAO serves seniors who apply for SNAP benefits using the SNAP application for seniors. The SAO also serves SNAP-only seniors who call the new SAO phone line at (833) 712-8027.
Note: Seniors can still do business with DTA in-person by going to their local DTA office.
