Right now I work full time making about 2600 before taxes and just 1600 after taxes!!a month. I'm barely getting by and its just me and my daughter. My rent is high and the rest is usually spent on her school and groceries. I barely have leftover for leisure for my daughter and myself. I do not qualify for food stamps or wic or anything. They take your gross income before any expenses and that doesn't make sense. My take home pay is 1600 rent is 1000 utlitlies 200 food 400 and her school. Sometimes I have to alternate what I'm going to pay.
Baby #2 is on the way and I did preliminary application and it said I would then qualify for food, wic and cash help for utlilties. I'm just wondering if you can actually get assistance if you are working. I really need the help and DH has been disabled and out of work due to an accident and barely has any income. What am I to do?? Baby is due in may!
