Welfare-Massachusetts

I was wondering, because I receive $618 cash benefits from the welfare dept., how many hours of work am I allowed to work? I don't want them to cut me but I can't live off of $618 for me and my 2 children neither. I been calling my case manager for the past week now =( No return call! Any other info in regards to this is very appreciated, thank you xo

  • so you don't want to get a real job and actualy work to support your family so you can continue to get benefits from the state. Thanks for being a typical welfare mom.

  • Once you start working they slowly take away your cash benefits.

  • lol It's ok armywife! She must feel very little to know that I have a daughter whom needs special care! I'm going to school fulltime and trying my best as a single mother. If I work FULLTIME then I need to quite school (and I refuse to hold off on school) once I finish THEN I can get a "real" job! Pssss people are too funny....very ballsy when being a ninja lol

    N E WAYS! I have tried googling it but no luck =(
