The Benefit Bank® Work Requirement Management Service (WRMS), is a technology-driven, community-based approach that ensures compliance and maintains benefits.
According to the USDA, an increase of $1 billion in SNAP expenditures is estimated to increase economic activity (GDP) by $1.79 billion. (February 2018)
The average monthly SNAP benefit for an individual is $134 which is less than $1.50 per meal
Increasingly, work requirements are compulsory for people receiving benefits in a majority of states. In at least part of 45 states, SNAP recipients who are considered Able Bodied Adults Without Dependents (ABAWDs) are currently limited to 3 months of benefits. To be eligible beyond 3 months, they must complete work requirements that help them search for, obtain, or maintain gainful employment. Many states have or are looking to adopting similar work requirements for Medicaid recipients.
