CALFRESH:

In response to COVID-19, your CalFresh benefits will continue with no changes for April, May, and June 2020. This means that if your semiannual report form (SAR 7) or annual renewal was due in April, or May 2020, you do not have to turn it in or complete your interview. If you have turned in your SAR 7 or renewal paperwork, it will not be processed, and nothing will change. If your SAR 7 or renewal paperwork included information that would make your benefits go up, please call the county to report this information over the phone.

You must report if your gross monthly income goes over your family's Income Reporting Threshold (IRT). Also, if you report your income has gone down, your benefit amount may go up. Call the county to find out what your IRT is, to report if your income goes down, or if you have any questions about your case.

Implementation of the time limit for Able Bodied Adults without Dependents (ABAWD) has been postponed statewide. At this time, CalFresh ABAWD recipients do not need to meet the work requirement.
