Default Hope this helps

answer your question...

Resource limits: Resources include cash, money in the bank, and some things you own. But, not all resources are counted. For example, the program doesn’t count your home. The program also does not count $4,650 of the value of one car. The resource limit depends on age or if you are disabled.

Age 60 or older or disabled: Limit of $3,000.
Under 60: Limit of $2,000

Surely if you are hoping to get food stamps then you are in hard times already?

Do you own your homes or do you rent? If you rent, you may want to apply for "housing assistance" and possibly "utility bill assistance".

This site http://www.nj.gov/humanservices/dfd/...to_apply12.pdf doesn't answer your specific questions, but does have contact infor for NJ SNAP.

When we applied for Medicaid for my late Mom (to pay the nursing home) they went back close to four years on checking & savings account statements.

Take the most current statements. They will have your account numbers and will go back as far as they need.
