For those of us getting welfare, how long have you been on it and how much do you receive?

I get $457 and have been on it for 18 months.

  • I used to be in it while my husband was laid off and we got $583 a month for food assistance for a family of four. They also helped us with our rent for one month. We were on the assistance for 6 months and after my DH got a new job we got off assitance. We didn't want to tie up funds that could have been used for another family in need.
