Hi! I'm a SAHM with four children and my husband and I were separated last month. We were already receiving food stamps and now I'm up for my eligibility review.
I haven't reported my husband moving out because he's still depositing his paychecks into our joint account and paying the bills with it. We're doing a three month trial separation and then seeing where we are, so I really don't want to change all the paperwork and then change it back again. He doesn't have a new address for me to prove, either. Sometimes he sleeps in his car, sometimes a hotel, or sometimes a relatives house.
So do I report him moving out if he's still giving us all his money? How does that work? Also, he got a $2000 cash advance from his credit card and put it in our account to cover bills because his employer has cut his hours way back. Does that count as income?
Should I just bring in the blank eligibility review form to my review appointment and fill it out there? Call the helpline and ask? I'm afraid I'll get in trouble somehow because I'm supposed to report changes from last month by the 8th.
hey! link to the old thread!
This is how I feel with the system right now. I went in and yelled at the receptionist today at the office where they are "processing" my foodstamps and cash assistance. I havent even been approved for freaking WIC yet and its been like 2-3 months. I am just so pissed I dont know whats going on with my case and I am about to be homeless and hungry and they dont even give you a list of other resources like food pantrys. I wasnt sure what to ask them for so they gave me nothing.
My caseworker wont return my calls.
Any suggestions for navigating the system? This is freaking ridiculous.

I am in CO. We got emergency foodstamps like 2 months ago. Now that is all gone.
While I was yelling at the lady, (and all the ppl in the office were like "YEA MAN!" ) A lady gave me 211.
I plan to call it first thing in the morning.
I dont actually know if we are going to be homeless but I dont know how much dh gets paid on the 30th and our rent/utilities are like $800. I have never not paid rent before so I dont knnow what happens or how fast.
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.)
