DH getting laid off tomorrow

Just wondering if yall would pray? DH is getting laid off tomorrow and I am 35 weeks pregnant. I have faith we will be ok but I can't help worrying.
Should I apply for wic? How do they check income if we don't have any?
Thanks mamas!!

Re: DH getting laid off tomorrow

If you have no income then you automatically qualify.

Does your husband qualify for unemployment? If so they will decide based off of this. I would also see about getting food stamps and medical as soon as you can. Even if they deny you the first time based off of your husbands last check reaply in another week or two. If you think they are wrong double check and question. They have twice made mistakes on our application. First saying we didn't qualify (I reaplied and qualified) when we did and then lowering our food stamp allowance claiming we were bringing in more money than previously. I called and questioned them about it and took in our last 2 months check stubs and we wound up with an increase over the previous amount not a decrease.

Pride and refusing to use food stamps only gets you a hungry belly. It is humiliating but worth it in making sure our kids are well fed.

Hugs. You will get through it.

Food stamps are easier to use these days. It's a debit card. You really have to be looking to know. We had to use one for about three months. It hurts but no sense in denying yourself a benefit you pay for.

Focus on your baby. Once you get organized and over the trauma, you might even enjoy having your hubby home for a few weeks before baby arrives.

Hope he finds something soon!

Hugs.....thanks yall!!!

He should qualify for unemployment....he was no fault term'd....he is a reservist as well and atm, that is our only income (385$/mo). We get our medical from the military. We currently pay oop for it but he is deploying in the fall and we will get it free in the next month or so til 6mo after he returns....so at least we are covered there.

Thanks ladies! He has had interviews but he has been turned down a few times due to the deployment. He did get one offer.....his old company for 10k/yr less. That will be tough but we can manage I think. I decided not to apply for wic/snap since he accepted the job so quickly.
Now since we will be having a harder time, I have asked him to consult a couple of employment law attorneys and see if he has enough to put together a wrongful termination suit.....it sounds like he does. We will see.

Thank you for all your prayers and good thoughts.

Praying for everything to fall into place. I admire you and your husband...you are hardworkers and will do everything to self support. Keep us updated if he does follow through with the employement law attorney. Many hugs and prayers your way!
