The Social Security Administration, in conjunction with the Department of Social Services (DSS), has a project called the South Carolina Combined Application Project (SCCAP). SCCAP is a program where you no longer have to apply at a DSS office in order to receive SNAP benefits. You are eligible for SNAP benefits because you receive SSI. You will receive a set amount of SNAP benefits each month (with annual cost-of-living adjustments) and may receive them as long as you continue to receive SSI and your household living arrangement remains the same.
If you are eligible, you will receive benefits the month following the date your application is received. You will be notified in writing.
A copy of the Food Stamp Program Rights and Responsibilities is available at the bottom of this page beneath More Information and Resources.
If you have any questions concerning food stamps or the above information, please call the SCCAP toll free hotline at 1-800-616-1309.
You are not required to pay tax on food purchased with SNAP benefits.
