After several negotiations, a new deal to raise the debt ceiling in the U.S. was ultimately agreed upon. Under the new deal, changes to the work requirements to receive the SNAP Benefits 2023 were made.Under the current SNAP Benefits 2023, individuals, who are aged 18 to 49 years old and with no children, are restricted to receive payments only for three months for over three years.
However, according to Bieber, individuals will be exempted if they can prove that they are participating in a job training program or working for at least 20 hours every week. Unfortunately, individuals who will not meet the requirements can only qualify to receive more SNAP Benefits 2023 if they have a mental or physical disability that limits them from working.

According to Stevens, under the new debt ceiling deal, the work requirements for the SNAP Benefits 2023 will also apply to those individuals who are aged 50 to 54 years old and with no children. Furthermore, older individuals must now prove that they are participating in a job training program or working for at least 20 hours every week as well to not be affected by the changes in the SNAP Benefits 2023. However, the individuals will be exempted from reporting if they are homeless, veterans, or those who are in the foster care.
