Re: Food stamp update

I heard of someone in your exact situation who was just denied food stamps. Actually she has one more child then you and half as much income. I'm wondering three things, a. if "living at home" immediately disqualifies you because you are not head of household and b. if all of the income in the home is supposed to be accounted for ie your mom's or c. if they use a completely different calculator for situations like this where they consider you rent free or a dependent of the head of household.

I could be wrong, but I literally JUST saw the same thing happen to someone else.

The other thing is that I think they have their own formula for figuring monthly income/support etc. They may have taken your 800 and put it into their own calculator that counts the fifth weeks of a month and such. kwim?
