When applying for food asst does everyone have to do this?

Is there anyone here that has been through this process? I have heard many times about folks frauding the system. Here is a list my DHS caseworker wants within 10 days. Now how in the hell is folks being able to "fraud the system" when they have to come up with ALL this SHIT?!
Does everyone have to come up with all this? Or is all states different??

* DH check stubs from the last 30 days,
* Last UE check saying as such
* Mortgage verification,
* Proof of vehicle ownership
* Kelly blue book value of our cars or dealer statement of value
* Property tax records and amount
* Checking/savings acct
* Home owners insurance amount
* Proof my DH was no longer employed at his last job
* Verification of home ownership!!!!

  • Then how to some people are able to commit fraud when they require all that?

    You'll find most people who like to complain about how many people are abusing the system don't have the first clue what's involved in getting assistance in the first place.

  • It looks pretty typical. When I applied for food stamps after my divorce eleven years ago, the application was 29 pages long.

  • That's not very much info. Having bought a car while you were working shouldn't disqualify anyone from getting food when they are not.
