SNAP Work Rules

To be eligible for SNAP, there are specific work rules you must meet.

The SNAP program has two different work rules. SNAP household members between the ages of 16 and 59, who are not exempt, must meet the general SNAP work rules. If you are not exempt from the general SNAP work rules you might also have to meet the Able-Bodied Adult Without Dependents (ABAWD) work program rules. Find out more about the work rules and if you qualify for an exemption.
