How to access SNAP benefits

If you’re on a fixed income and see costs keep going up, or if you’re struggling to make ends meet on a tight budget, you are not alone. AARP Foundation can connect you with resources and assistance to help you stretch your grocery budget. Assistance is available for adults of all ages through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), which provides participants with a credit card-like card (EBT card) for making purchases at grocery stores and some farmers markets. Millions of older adults use SNAP to afford the food they need each month and AARP Foundation wants to make it easier to apply and enroll.
