I am applying for SNAP benefits in NY and am being asked for ridiculous documentation. Who do I file a complaint with?


You can ask your caseworker if they will accept other forms of documentation that you do have. Sometimes you can get a supervisor's name and discuss the issue with them if the caseworker is unresponsive. If your caseworker does not accept your documentation and you are denied, your denial letter should also contain information about requesting a state hearing. If the documentation doesn't have that information, check the web for state hearing requests in your state for SNAP.
