Having knowledge of the payment schedule enables you to effectively budget and maximize your assistance.

While SNAP benefits are typically issued on a monthly basis, payment schedules can vary by state. A household’s CalFresh benefits are proportional to its size and monthly net income after allowable deductions.

In addition, households with minor children who satisfy the federal TANF employment requirements are eligible for supplemental WINS benefits.

Calculating benefits requires deducting 30% of the household’s net income from the utmost amount for the household’s size.
