SNAP Interim Reporting and Recertification Extensions – If your Interim Reporting Form or case recertification is due in March, April, May or June and you are unable to get your paperwork in or complete your interview, your case will not be closed. You will receive your benefits on the usual day. Your case has been granted a six-month extension from the date your recertification is due. More information will follow on your new recertification date. In the meantime, you will continue to receive SNAP benefits.
