Income Exclusion for Benefits Paid to Children of Vietnam Veterans with Certain Birth Defects (September 19, 2005).

FNS writes that “It has recently come to our attention that under Public Laws 104-204 and 106-419, benefits paid by the Veterans Administration to the children of Vietnam veterans born with congenital spina bifida and certain other birth defects are excludable as income for food stamp purposes.” The law was passed in 1997, and broadened in 2001. Heh, better late than never.
