There are special rules for households with a member who has a disability or is 60 years and older. The rules are complex but help more people qualify for the program.
Due to the complexity of these special rules, we advise folks in this category to contact their county Social Services office for eligibility information.
In addition to meeting net income limits, your household may qualify for CalFresh if you have less than $3,250 in assets and resources.
*Additional exceptions may apply to people who are self-employed or victims of domestic violence.
You can own your car, home, and retirement plan and still qualify for CalFresh.
