Starting next year, Indiana is set to eliminate food stamp benefits for tens of thousands of people who either cannot get a job, or refuse to attend job training, the Indianapolis Star reports.
If able-bodied adults without children do not find work or participate in a 20-hour-a-week job training program, benefits will be strictly limited to a three-month period. Workers usually receive $131 a month from the food stamp program.
The time limit is normally listed as a necessary condition to receiving benefit money. Most states qualify to waive the requirement, but although Indiana is a state that similarly qualifies, they have decided that time-limits are a useful tool to keep around. In the rest of the country, 28 other states are taking advantage of waiver for the entire fiscal year, while 14 only rely on the waiver for part of the year.
