  • I'm a single mother with a one year old and we get around $350, give or take a couple dollars, it's a random number. I also work (Anon 3:28), but because my husband decided to split and not support his family, the extra assistance is extremely helpful. If you can't just answer someone's question without turning it into an issue or being "snotty", why bother answering it in the first place?

  • family of 5 and we get $523 although they seem to be confused about something cause when we both weren't working the amount at first was 0 then 300 then 500 and now that my husband is now back to work we get more then we ever did. hummm not complaining though. although my unemployment did stop around the same time.

  • BradenlsMySon, that's crazy....how are you a single parents only getting $99 in Food Stamps for an entire month? Have they told you why you aren't eligible to receive more?
