Does Receiving Social Security Benefits Affect SNAP Benefits?

Does receiving social security benefits affect SNAP benefits

Hi. My area of expertise is limited to Social Security benefits. I have no special knowledge of the SNAP benefit program, but since the the SNAP program is needs based I assume that Social Security income is counted when determining if a person is eligible for SNAP benefits (https://www.fns.usda.gov/snap/eligibility/elderly-disabled-special-rules...?).

Best, Jerry
