Ok, my application was dated 9/29 and my denial dated 11/25 - is that insane in itself?!?!
(For EVERYTHING medicaid, foodstamps, tanf, EVERYTHING)
The medicaid was denied because I dont have the money to buy birth cert's. (My worker told me she could approve tanf funds to help me pay for them)
My tanf and foodstamps were denied because I didn't give them proof of religion AND a financial statment (which I told her I was waiting to be mailed to me, and I actually had in my hand the day she told me she was denying my benefits-my car wasnt driveable that day)
The packet she gave me with a list of documents she needed to process my app had a due date on it that I didn't see, (10 days) and she didnt inform me their was a due date either.
I am trying to appeal but I have like 20 papers with the denial letter on it and I am confused about what I need to do.
It says I should contact my caseworker for help appealing. :
I am overwhelmed. We dont have enough to pay rent this month. (If we plan on eating.)
Yeesh! Things are so crazy, aren't they? I hate all the red tape people hand you sometimes.
If I don't have my dd by the eighteenth I'm going to be induced. I'm not a huge advocate for induction but in this case I'm comfortable with it. I've been told by many that when she comes on out my hubby should go directly to the public aid office and inform them. Our food stamps will be raised and we should qualify for TANF as well. As much as I don't want to go from hospital to the public aid office if that's what I have to do, I know the extra benefits will be a godsend. I also want to clear up what I need to do and show right away so that I'm for sure dd has her insurance taken care of. I've heard different things about whether they'll want another reassessment, what paperwork I'll need to bring in, etc. so that's why I'll be sending hubby for all the info while I recoup with little one.
I'm very excited for her to be here!
