Just wondering if anyone knows...can I collect food stamps and/or Cash Aid while I am on SDI?

I live in CA and am going on leave (State Disability Insurance) to have my baby. But it only pays like 119 dollars a week...which will NOT cover the rent, let alone food expenses. Does anyone have any insight or suggestions?

  • yes you would most likely qualify for food assistance...look online..alot of states have a food stamp calculater that gives you an estimate on how much you would qualify for...i was recently out on disability too and we qualified. but agree with the first probably wont get cash assistance.
