Beyond upset

I'm so stressed out about finances idk what to do. I was relying on getting food stamps so that me, my boyfriend, and my baby can survive while I'm on maternity leave. He works but he's going to have to pay for rent and all the bills while I'm not working. Idk what we're going to do cause I got rejected. I have $18 to my name and haven't even had the baby yet. I'm so upset Idk what I can do. Even if I did fight and win the case, I still wouldn't get anything for months and I don't have that kind of time. :(

Why were you rejected? I got them and I'm also on leave from work?

You have more of a chance of getting food stamps after the baby is born

Because they said I didn't send in all the information but I don't see how because the application was filled completely, I answered all the questions on the phone interview, and I sent in 4 check stubs and a copy of my drivers license like they asked. Monday I'm going to call them and see if they'll tell me exactly what I missed.

I was told you couldn't recieve unemployment on leave because technically you still have a job. But I definitely feel your pain because I have no income of my own whatsoever. My boyfriend works, but I hate to see him doing it all on his own.

I have wic but I didn't get any benefits this month I guess because I'm due this month. I'm not going to get anything else from them till I have the baby

I seriously had to apply like six times before I got accepted. Persistence is the key with welfare. It's ridiculous but worth it.

you need too see a case worker.. or type in food stamps in ____(your state)
and the website will tell you how much you can make a month, and how much you could recieve if you make under this amount.
