When will I see the drop in benefits? Cuts go into effect on November 1, 2013, so the SNAP benefit amount you receive will be less in November and each month after. This is a permanent benefit cut.   How much will my total benefit cut be? SNAP benefits are based on monthly income and expenses and household size. Your actual benefit cut will vary according to your household, but this chart provides the maximum cut that each household size could experience. Why are my benefits going down? SNAP benefits are being cut because of legislative decisions made by the United States  Congress in 2010. You should be aware that Congress is considering additional cuts to SNAP benefit levels and eligibility. You can help prevent these cuts by calling or emailing your members of Congress.
