I spent the past week on the phone trying to get my benefits, they wanted my landlord to sign saying where I live and how much rent I pay, my boss to send in unemployment verification, copies of my utility bills, I mean the list went onnnnn. Im applying for food stamps and temporary cash assistance though because I haven't worked in months! The process is so ridiculous, like I had to pay 20 $ at ups to fax in all the paper work! It shouldn't cost me money to get help!

Omg here in Augusta ga they keep denying me they say I make too much but I'm leaving work to finish school so hopefully I get approved. It's like ppl who cheat the system get it but those who honestly work and earn a living get blown off!! I hope Illinois takes better care of me.

I think its meesed up and unfair. I work in a store so i see ppl who is getting it and probably shouldnt be all day. I applied and got only 65. Wic is limited but its good to have and they dnt take you through all that trouble or ask for much.
