Households will receive a Recertification form in the 11th month of the certification period (or, for SNAP, the 23rd month of the certification period for households with all elderly or disabled members). The household must complete and submit this form by its due date, participate in an interview (for SNAP, RIW, or GPA) and provide required documents in order to continue to receive benefits beyond the end of the certification period.
Sign and date the Recertification Form, include copies of the requested documents and submit it via:
Mail: addressed to:
- State of Rhode Island
- P.O. Box 8709
- Cranston, RI 02920-8787
In Person: You may drop off your Recertification Form in person by visiting your local DHS office.
Online: managing your case at HealthyRhode RI to make the changes on the Recertification Form and upload copies of the requested documents.
There are many partner agencies who can meet you in your community to help you with applications and forms:

If you submit a recertification form after your certification period has expired, the form will be considered an initial application for benefits. Benefits will be effective as of the date that the form was received by DHS.
