Depends of what kind, and what state. Pregnancy-related Medicaid covers Mom during pregnancy, and the baby for the first year of life. After that, you have to reapply under regular Medicaid. Welfare for new mothers is allowed for the first year of the child's life. After that, they want you to get a job. Food stamps cover until you make too much money. If you are disabled, there is no time limit as long as you meet guidelines.
(FYI, this is where I live, it is different in other states,)
There is WIC, food stamps, HUD housing, Medicaid, and other welfare benefits out there. There are programs to cover utility bills. Some people can eligible for all of them, some only some things. It really depends.
