  • I have had them, and not ashamed! I needed the help, and it helped enormously i might add.

    It depends on your income, We have a family of 5, and we got 900/month and we had monthly income of 450ish$
    Got our card in the mail, so from the distric. and yes, the balance rolls over each month. I'm sure it varies state, by state, but this is how it is in VA.

  • 1. about how much you think a family of 4 would get monthly?   your state should have an online estimator 

    2. did you get your card from the local office or district? local office, usually are divided by counties

    3.does the balance roll over each month? yes

  • Balance rolls over, but you really should use it all, or the office may question.
    I have no idea about how much your fam would get- I was a single mom with 2 kids, I got about 500. Too much!
    When I started working it decreased.

    Card comes in mail ..GL

  • it depends on the state and you could either get the card there or in the mail... and yes it does rollover.

  • We got them for 3 months, for a family of 6 we got $120/month. If I had any leftover, yes, it rolled over. My card came in the mail from the state. We weren't approved, but it took 3 months to figure out, at the minimum amount allowed for a family our size.

  • We got $265.00 a month. I think it depends on the state you live in though.
