Shouldn’t be a problem finding a job in the booming economy.

Via WISTV:

South Carolina is tightening requirements for “Able-Bodied Adult Without Dependents” (ABAWD) who receive food assistance under the SNAP program, according to DSS.

 

DSS defines an ABAWD as a person between the ages of 18 and 50 who has no dependents and is considered to be able-bodied.

 

After April 1, 2016, DSS said ABAWDs receiving SNAP benefits will be limited to three months of SNAP benefits in a 36-month period unless the recipients can meet an ABAWD work requirement or an exemption.

 

The ABAWD work requirement is as follows:

 

Work at least 80 hours monthly (in exchange for money or in-kind benefits, or unpaid);

 

Participate in and comply with the requirements of a work program (some examples of a work program include SNAP Employment and Training (E&T), Workforce Innovation Opportunities Act (WIOA), Project Hope) at least 20 hours weekly; or

 

Any combination of working and participating in a work program at least 80 hours monthly. More
