New Jersey SNAP Recipients to Continue to Receive Enhanced Food Assistance Benefits in November

All New Jersey recipients of the New Jersey Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) will receive extra benefits in November, the New Jersey Department of Human Services announced Monday morning.

New Jersey households eligible for the program will receive at least $95 in emergency benefits or the maximum benefit for your household size, whichever is greater.

The 15 percent increase in SNAP benefits that began last January will now remain in effect through at least the month of November.

The extra benefits are intended to help address food needs related to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

NJ SNAP serves nearly 900,000 New Jerseyans in over 419,000 households, with the monthly SNAP benefit based on household size and income.

If you are a SNAP recipient, you can check your balance by visiting www.NJFamiliesFirst.com or by calling the number on the back of your card.

  1. Emes, stop gloating! Just because your hiding behind your computer or phone doesn’t shield your comment from the BOSS. Whatever your financial situation is now can be changed in a heartbeat, so be proud of yourself quietly but keep your smug commenting to yourself.

  2. Why can’t ppl speak nicely to one another. Noone will have a penny more than decreed a short time ago on Rosh Hashana. And harbeh shluchim lamakom. If Hashem decided that your taxes will cover their food then that’s your tafkid. And anyways, I prefer my money be taken that way than rachmana litzlan for doctors, hospitals, or other places that cost a lot of money and deal with unfortunate life situations. Just a change of perspective. I don’t receive benefits and am happy for those that will have more this month. It doesn’t rake away from anything I am meant to have anyways. Try working on being happy fo others, it’s a beautiful way to live. Much healthier!

  3. I’m not sure what anyone is talking about. For someone to be denied food stamps, they can be making very little money (if you report your income), and with all these benefits that gives the stores a right to hike up the food prices to ridiculous levels (yes, I just went to store in Lakewood and a dozen eggs was 5.49). Is that fair???
    If not for these benefits they would never get away with these hikes.
