  • They differ not only from state to state, but from count to county within the same state based on cost of living in that county.

  • What Obby said... I live in one of the poorest counties in my state so our income based levels for those who seek aid are different than the counties on either side of us...check your local welfare office...

  • Yes... There should be some form of uniformity.. however that is difficult because the cost of living and even base wage pay varies from state to state.

    There is uniformity. The number is based on a uniform percentage regardless of how much the actual dollar amount is. The dollar amounts are determined by cost of living.
