An acquaintance of mine left her kids and her ebt card with a family member while she goes to rehab. It will probably be a long term rehab stay, like 6 months or more. She lists her address with the welfare office as the relative's home even though she's not there. She expects the relative to withdraw the cash aid and give it to her in rehab, and to keep the majority of food stamp benefits for the kids. She thinks it's ok but it doesn't seem legal to me.
Anyone know? For the record, it's just curiosity, I don't plan on getting in their biz about it either way.
