  • According to the SNAP website, right now, the max is $367/mo. It drops to $347/mo on 11/1/2013. HOWEVER, that's merely a maximum and it could be lower based on your monthly income.

  • You can get more by working & using daycare aid instead

  • I have no clue. I never qualified for cash assistance, even when I was on FS. I always worked at least part time, and always made too much. You pretty much have to be destitute to get cash assistance.

  • Not a clue but a job is a great thing to get, not to mention an education.

  • The website for your States welfare should have a calculator that will estimate your benefits based on your income and household.

  • You mean to fall back on in case you can't find work, correct? This is NOT your Plan A, I hope.

  • Less than $300 a month.

  • Whatever the amount, you would get more if you worked. And I'm sure your daycare is free so there really aren't any reasons not to get a job. Any type of job.
