Food Stamp Benefits: How Excited Do You Get?

Post by Guest on Mon Feb 21, 2011 3:42 pm

Just a simple question, how excited do you get when it's that time of the month to get your food stamp benefits added to your card? Have to admit that it's rather sad that the highpoint of my life comes from anticipating the benefits on my debit card. ACK!!!

I am not entitled to food stamps in Florida. I have some savings. Same with Medicaid.

It definitely helps. The one caveat that was on my mind was that when I applied I had asked that since I'm living with my parents, if it would affect their food stamps or Social Security. Since I needed it for myself, the interview that I had, I was told that it wouldn't and was approved for $200. The State of Michigan determined that since I had no income and no way to buy food that I was entitled to $200 every month.

I use the entire amount to put food in the home for my mom and dad also. It just comes in handy. I'll buy a few things for myself and then the rest goes to buy groceries for the whole family.

Can you tell me what they look at when you apply for Food Stamps ? Do they want 6 months of bank statements ? Thanks !

When I applied, since I didn't have any income and I was exhausted of my unemployment, they just asked me what my income was, how do I get by and a few basic questions. I don't know if they did any checking, I can imagine they did that before I did my phone interview.

Since I'm living with my parents, I had asked them if it would affect my parents food stamp benefits and social security. Once they reassured me that they wouldn't be affected, I was approved for it.

The one thing they did ask was how I was surviving. I simply explain to them that I had no income, that finding employment was scarce even though I was still looking and that I had no resources to buy food for myself. They considered my predicament to be destitute and approved me for $200 every month.

It depends on the state you live in.

Not a problem ... the phone interview wasn't all that complicated but every state might be different in how they interview you for your benefits. Very Happy Just be honest about your situation ... Very Happy

Unfortunately, because Michigan decided to change the payout system, I have to wait until March 10th.

I can't get food stamps, since I still have significant resources in the bank. Even getting food boxes is iffy, since there are boundary requirements galore.

I get sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo excited. I get $200 a month too, and I but stuff to make cookies once a month..so that I always have something to comfort me.

At times like these it's funny how a chocolate chip cookie can make my whole day.

Tomorrow is my last day of ramen noodles for a little while. Food stamps on Tuesday!


Gotta love a country that lets an individual who has worked for about 40 years sink so low that they look forward to the first of the month for their food stamp card to be refilled and 250 minutes put on your Safelink cell phone!

I get turned down every time, no children, no dependents and a tiny bit of income like it'll feed me with utility bills and such. It is a joke and not a funny one.

I don't get mine for, at least, another week. I'm still eating on ramen noodles and crackers.

Speaking of food...does anyone know how to pull out a stove, that is between two countrers...to clean the sides? Every time I try to move it...parts of the stove start to eject themselves...sounds like a horror movie scene right? Really, I would like to move it.

if you have gas it should be connected by a flex hose n should not cause anything to move....if it older it may not be able to be moved without disconnecting first

You might want to turn off the gas to the stove before attempting this.
