If you have received notice that your benefits have been suspended, discontinued or terminated you may request that your benefits continue. Your request should first be made to the agency that is proposing to terminate or reduce your benefits. We do not order continuing benefits unless that agency (usually a County Department) has inappropriately refused to provide them. The rules for continuing benefits are different for each public benefits program. Generally speaking, the government agency is to continue benefits if we received your appeal prior to the date the agency told you it was going to discontinue or reduce your benefits. That date may have been before the deadline to appeal. However, there are exceptions. For example, continuing benefits for food stamps are not available after the end of the certification period, and continuing benefits are not available if an application for benefits is denied.
If your request for continuing benefits involves Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, also known as Food Assistance benefits, you may submit a request with the Colorado Department of Human Services, SNAP Hearings Unit, 3550 W. Oxford Avenue, Denver, CO 80236. The email for the Colorado Department of Human Services SNAP Hearings Unit is firstname.lastname@example.org, and the telephone numbers are 833-847-0345 and 303-866-7285.
