SNAP Calculator

This calculator has five steps. You will answer questions about:

  1. the people in your house
  2. your assets
  3. your income
  4. your household expenses
  5. The final step will tell you how much you may receive in SNAP benefits each month, how to apply for them, and how to print the food stamp application from this website.

SNAP has many rules. This calculator covers most of the rules, but not all of them. In special situations, you may be eligible for a different amount than the calculator tells you.

Only the Massachusetts Department of Transitional Assistance (DTA) can make the final decision about your benefits. When you finish the calculator, you will learn how to find your local DTA office. You can apply in person or send your application to the your local DTA office by mail or fax.
