MILLIONS of eligible Americans in Connecticut and Maine are among the beneficiaries who will receive up to $157 worth of food stamps.
About 42 million people across the country are receiving SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) benefits.
The program ensures households can put food on the table and recipients receive a pre-loaded card that allows them to buy groceries.
Residents in Connecticut will receive their benefits over 22 days of the month and they are currently being dispatched.
In Minnesota, food stamps can be claimed from Wednesday through the 13th, based on the last digit of the customer’s record number.
Meanwhile, in Maine residents, benefits are available from the 10th to the 14th of each month and are distributed based on the last digit of the claimant’s date of birth.
From the 1st to the 10th of every month, benefits are available in Illinois.
And in Washington, benefits can be claimed between the first and 20order every month.
The program is limited to people with gross incomes up to 130 percent of the federal poverty line.
This number currently starts at $12,880 for a one-person household and goes up depending on family size.
For a household of four, the threshold is $26,500.
Around 1.2 million beneficiaries in Michigan will see food stamps increase by at least $95 this month.

Eligible New Yorkers can pocket an additional $1,440 in SNAP benefits, which equates to an increase of $120 per month, according to United States Department of Agriculture.
Those in Oregon, however, will get an extra $337 in benefits – which is just over $28 per month increase.
SNAP households are expected to spend about 30% of their own cash on food.
