If I get an auto accident settlement do I have to report it to welfare?

Question Details:

I was in an auto accident and received injuries, the other person was at fault and her insurance company made a settlement with me, after reimbursing attorney fees and Doctor bills, I am getting a lump sum payment of what money is left over. I am currently on TANF, Medicaid and Food Stamps. Do I have to report this money to them, is it considered income?
