Q) I am a single mother of three, but only my son lives with me now and he just turned 18, but he is still a junior in High School, I have been unemployed, and have been under the care of a therapist, and my pap. I am in the process of transferring my Down syndrome aunt into my care, which will help with my income, bc of the room and board provided, but her care is 24/7, so it will be like a full time job. She is staying with me for 2 weeks and then her move will take place. I had received a letter telling me I had to go to this work program and they cut my food stamps off, I hadn’t even received a full 3 months. What do I do in this predicament?
A) You need to visit your local benefits office and speak with a counselor and explain your situation. You counselor will best determine your benefit options in your situation.
