Renew Your CalFresh Benefits

To keep CalFresh for as long as you are eligible, re-certify or renew your benefits with the Economic Assistance Division office.

You’ll get mail that tells you when to submit reports. Be sure to us know if your home address or phone number changes, so we can alert you about your appointments! 

Reports include:

  • Every six months, complete and submit a written report (called a SAR7).
  • Each 12, 24 or 36 months, re-certify your benefits at an in-person or phone interview.

How to Report Changes

Contact Economic Assistance within 10 days if:

  • Your income goes higher, and you no longer meet the eligibility guidelines for CalFresh, OR
  • You begin working less than 20 hours a week (if you were working more before).
You can report to us:
