  • Ha ha Anon! Tell that to them...I'm sure that they'd laugh me right out of the building with my $75K salary if I were to ask for PA and I'm a single mother.

  • Probably the same reason they assume all young parents are on PA, too. It just seems typical. My friends were shocked with they found out I wasn't on PA because I am so young, but we don't need it, nor do we qualify for it.

  • Well in the eyes of the govt you're a single mother, you're in disadvantage which makes entitled to receive PA.

  • When my mom got divorced, she became a single mom. Not only did she NOT get child support, she didn't receive a DIME in PA. And she had THREE kids to raise. No low-income housing, NADA.

  • I know, right? Not a one of the single moms I know qualify for PA. They all have great jobs.
