I am disabled and want to qualify for food stamps

Q) I am disabled and want to qualify for food stamps and for help with my medicare premium. What is the income level for this. Thanks

A) Most states offer coverage for people with disabilities and people below a certain income level.  You need to call or visit your state Medicaid Office and speak with a medicaid counselor regarding Medicaid coverage for yourself. (In some states you can apply online, visit your state website)

The Affordable Care Act of 2010, signed by President Obama on March 23, 2010, creates a national Medicaid minimum eligibility level of 133% of the federal poverty level.

Maximum for your 82 year old person ($11,490X133%) = $15,281.70 (if she lives alone)

Persons in family/household Poverty guideline
For families/households with more than 8 persons, add $4,020 for each additional person.
1 $11,490
2 $15,510
3 $19,530
4 $23,550
5 $27,570
6 $31,590
7 $35,610
8 $39,630

  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.
