Issues: Appellant's Statement of the Issues:
Issue 1: Federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program regulations allow a one-time, non-recurring lump sum payment to be excluded when determining income to calculate benefits. Penne Nienow received recurring lump sum payments for leasing mineral rights in 2001, 2006 and 2011. Can the Department consider the 2011 payment to be recurring and refuse to exclude the money Nienow received in 2011 when calculating income to determine Nienow's SNAP benefits for 2012?

Appellee's Statement of the Issues:
Whether Penne Nienow's mineral lease bonus is nonrecurring income.
