:( going to apply for PA tomorrow.

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
We are low income and have avoided getting on PA but we busted. We have $5 in our pocket and enough food to maybe make it to Friday when hubby gets paid again. Then we have gas, water, and hubby phone to pay which will not leave us with much to buy food if any. I feel defeated. However hopefully we don't need it long.

PA can take up to 30 days before your application is approved and you actually start getting money for food.

In my state you can get food stamps with in 5days.

Quoting SoKamele:

 Don't forget to try your local food banks....you won't be get anything right away from PA...so ask about where you can get help immediately if you need it.

Good luck...........
