Fact Sheet: SNAP Payment Error Rate

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) quality control (QC) system measures payment error, or improper payments. Improper payments are overpayments and underpayments to SNAP participants that occur when the state:
-- Certifies someone who is not eligible, or
-- Calculates the benefit amount incorrectly such that the individual receives too much or too little benefits.
The QC system is not a measure of fraud.
