REPORT CHANGES, STAY QUALIFIED FOR FOOD STAMPS

July 9, 2003 — Food Stamp recipients are reminded of the importance of reporting changes in their households, said a release from V.I. Human Services Department.
The following changes must be reported immediately:
— a new member in a household;
— an increase or decrease in employment earnings;
— son or daughter leaving the household to attend college etc.;
— receipt of child support payment;
— receipt of tax refund;
— purchase of a new car, etc.
Human Services Commissioner Sedonie Halbert would also like to notify the general public that a total of 19 individuals were disqualified from the Food Stamp Program for one year, for their failure to report household changes.
