The nation’s food stamp program, formally known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), provided a record $74.6 billion in benefits to needy Americans in Fiscal Year 2012 — paying out $2 billion too much, according to the annual quality control report for FY 2012, the most recent year for which data is available.

Combining the $2,069,402,427 in overpayments with the $484,885,314 in underpayments for fiscal 2012 yields a “payment error rate” of 3.42 percent.
