You need identification such as a driver’s license, Minnesota ID, Tribal ID, or social security number. Some programs require proof of citizenship. We may also ask for proof of income (both earned and unearned), proof of assets such as bank accounts, certificates of deposit, bonds, life insurance policies, vehicles, real estate, burial agreements, and any other assets. We may ask for health insurance information as well. The application process can take up to 2 hours or more but generally is less than that.

Each program has a set of income and asset rules. Because each person’s circumstances vary, it is hard to determine eligibility without the details. An application needs to be completed to determine what you qualify for. For income and asset guidelines for medical, cash, and food support programs you can refer to the Department of Human Services website .
