I adopted 5 children. I get a adoption subsidy. Is that counted as income when applying for food stamps ?

Q) I adopted 5 children. I get a adoption subsidy. Is that counted as income when applying for food stamps ?

A) If you are receiving adoption assistance payments for your children you may have questions about how adoption assistance interacts with other financial support programs. Because adoption assistance is not considered taxable income by the IRS*, you may think that it will not count as income for other government programs. But each program is different and many social assistance program do count adoption assistance—or a part of it—as income.

  1. I agree…People on EBT shouldn’t be surviving on soda..chips..etc.
    Actually…Our whole country should get off all that junk food… It plays a big part in reason USA is 73% overweight.
    The most overweight country in world.. Quite sad.
    Anyways..
    Many of those “Poor people” you say…don’t have kitchens, cooking supplies..etc. Or a fridge/freezer… Or even a home..
    Either way…we shouldn’t revoke what people can eat.
    60% of meats are wasted in USA.. 45% fruits wasted.. 50% of vegetables..wasted from this “great country”
    I’m shocked I fought for USA in Iraq, to become the country it is becoming..
    But..I am homeless mostly now and manage to eat healthy.
    People need to stop asking for minimum wage to go up also…because it makes EVERYTHING else 10%+ more expensive.
