So I worked retail, and the store closed down. I will be getting a severance, and I just applied for unemployment. Severance wont last long, and unemployment wont be much since I made crap to begin with. I tried filing for cash assistance before and with the combined household income we made $300 above their limit. But now since I am unemployed, I might as well try again. The only thing is ill be getting my last paycheck this friday, and if i file now wont it still show that we make too much? I dont really know how this works. Im also starting school at the end of feb for a one year dental assistant program. So I guess my question is, should I wait a while to file for cash assistance? Or does it not matter since im not working at the moment? And yes I know some of you will judge, but I live with my dad and my son. My dad is on disability and I worked full time until now, so no we don't make a lot of money.. hell, we cant even afford toilet paper sometimes, but apparently public aid thinks we make too much together. Any suggestions will be helpful!Answer Question
