Public Benefits: Food Stamps

A recent change in policy called the Standard Medical Deduction, or SMED, could mean more food stamps for seniors and people who get Social Security disability or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) disability benefits.

Under the old policy, only 15% of the seniors and people who get SS/SSI disability benefits who receive food stamps in Georgia actually received a medical expense deduction under the old policy even when they were eligible. SMED, the new policy, makes a one-time application for standard medical expense deduction possible, and the monthly deduction can increase food stamp eligibility significantly.
