Repaying a SNAP Overpayment

Repaying a SNAP Overpayment

The Division of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program - Claims & Recovery (SNAP-CR) makes sure that all SNAP benefits comply with United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and State regulations. If extra benefits might have been paid, SNAP-CR reviews the case for accuracy. If SNAP-CR finds that extra benefits were paid, it establishes an overpayment claim with the State. SNAP-CR can recover overpayments on both open and closed cases. SNAP-CR also implements and lifts Intention Program Violation (IPV) sanctions.

SNAP-CR answers questions on billing inquiries, assists with US Department of the Treasury Offset Program (TOP) questions, and tracks money received on SNAP claims.
