My husband is the only one who works, I am unable to due to pain and panic attacks happen when stress happens, can't stop em. My husband is an E-5 we are a family of 4. Now I have neighbors who are E-6 and above who qualify for food stamps WTF?! Now some have three kids but most have 2. So wtf is going on?! It's also very stupid that they count the BAH but w/e I guess that counts as income...also they want the full amount you make a month BEFORE deductions. So yeah while his full income is 2482.12 we only see 1161.29 of that. Now with two kids there are of course separate dr visits and add gas prices onto that avg price here is 4.11 a gallon. So I have an allowance of maybe $50 a paycheck for food, I can feed my family on that mind you it's NOT easy and definatly not healthy Ramen ALOT o the time. But I am so livid for that fact that we don't qualify and yet higher ranks do!!!!!!!!!!!!! Is there anyone who has had this same issue and will an appeal even do anything?
I only made it as far as how much we make BEFORE deductions, That's when she closedo ff the deal. Also that's great that your E-5 hubby and you can make it and budget good, prolly have less bills then us. Because we have not only 4 mouths to feed two of the mtoddlers but two car payments, he will be using vacation days if he has to leave work for every dr visit, my DD is off the growth charts so she sees alot of specialists. Plus I'm going to headache specialists and other pain management doctors. But when all is said and done for each paycheck we have about $75 "extra" so $50 goes towards bills. Unfortunatly my hubbies recruiter sucks big time and althoug my man was told his school payment was in the contract, it was not. Yes he should have read the fine print, but also the recruiter shouldn't have be na dbag and lied to him. w/e there's nothng we can do about it now except pay it off which will take about 10 years if we are able to maintain the $200 a month fee which atm we are not able too... I am hoping thoug my hubby has finally made it to first the results come out in a few days...he prolly wont because he doesn't kiss ass or play the politics game and there is only a 6% advancment and well pretty much all gonna be ass kissers...
Also I do not view my self as selfish, I view my self as a loving mother who is doing her damnest to make sure her children are at least getting proper nurishment. We have WIC but that's not enough unfortunatly. I was told by the WIC worker that we will qualify for stamps since we qualify for WIC because they go off the same system...Answer Question
