I would learn the formula for calculating benefit amounts. Check out the USDA website or Google "SNAP Benefit Formula". That actually got me the job because others had no idea how to calculate the problems on the written test that they gave. Also know that since there is an extra week in some months use 4.333 when dividing the monthly benefit amount to get the weekly amount. example: 411.00/4.333= 94.85. 94.85 would be the weekly amount.
