Terms of Use

Background

The goal of this prescreener is to help connect individuals to SNAP and other government benefits and to make eligibility data more accessible. However, this prescreener is not affiliated with any government organizations.

This privacy policy covers snapscreener.com, medicaidscreener.com, and eitcscreener.com. If you did not find the calculator on one of these websites, it is because another organization is hosting it, but this privacy policy still applies.

State test, benefit, and allowance amounts may be incomplete, incorrect, or outdated due to limitations in finding updated sources. Eligibility factors vary between states, and some deductions, eligibility criteria, and eligibility pathways will not be included on this website. The only way to find out your true eligibility and benefit amount is to apply.

If you find any information contained in the prescreener to be inaccurate, please send an email to ben@snapscreener.com.
