  • It also depends on your income and all of you living expenses.

  • It goes by your income for the whole house. Not just how many kids you have. It's income to how many people are in the home.

  • It all depends on how much you make and how many people are in the house. We have three kids. We were getting $373 for the month. I just starting watching a couple of kids full time and our food stamps got cut to $211 a month.

  • depends on where you live income, and living expenses. when hubby had no income we got 600 a month with us and two kids now we get 306 because of what we pay out after his income. family size counts also
