What I meant was, it's ridiculous that you are penalized for saving money. $1800 is not a lot of money in the long run. A one time windfall like this is not going to make a whit of difference in your big financial picture. I can't believe the government would take you off food stamps for depositing this check - which the gov't itself gave you - in a savings account. It's this backwards mentality (on the gov'ts part) that prevents people from improving their situation.
