Pennsylvania Food Stamps Asset Guidelines Set
 
  by: Rebel - Havertown, PA

The Corbett administration has announced the guidelines of a controversial asset test it plans to re-impose in order for people to qualify for food stamps.

After discussions between the Department of Welfare and the Governor's Office and the Department of Agriculture the asset limit for food stamps has been set.

The Corbett administration plans to set the asset limit at $5,500 for households age 59 and under and $9,000 for households age 60 and above or with disabled persons.




The announcement is being portrayed in some quarters as the Corbett administration "relaxing" the guidelines but while it was originally reported that the administration planned to set the asset limit for food stamps at $2,000.

Corbett spokesman Kevin Harley says the number was not actually set until now.

"What Governor Corbett said is that we will have an asset test, however, the actual amount was to be determined, and we’ve determined that now," he says. "So it was always in discussion, going back and forth between the Department of Welfare and the Governor’s Office and the Department of Agriculture."
