If you're on FS does that mean you're poor?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

I just read in another post that just because you're on FS doesn't mean you're poor.  IMO if you can't afford a basic neccesity you're poor.  Not being mean that's just the way it is.  You can only get FS if you make under a certain amount, if it weren't based on income then they would give them to everyone, right?

Yes you are poor. If you can't feed your own kids you are poor.

 You have to be super poor to get FS.  I tried to get them a few years ago and was denied because I made too much.  At the time, I only made about $25K per year with 2 kids!

Probably a little full of shit, but yeah nowadays, they always find everything out.

I know that "they" found out about an already closed bank account and asked where that money went.  I think she's either full of shit or she's going to be caught.

Quoting Master_Debater:

They're find out anyway w/o her saying anything. Everything's computerized now. They knew I had a job and where before I got a chance to report it.



Quoting Anonymous:

You are supposed to report how much you have in savings. If you have a bank account, they need to know.

the govt. doesn't see whats in my savings and retirements accounts thank goodness! Right now I lost my job and took one paying less but I still have my savings and retirement account going.  Hopefully w/ in the next year ill get a better paying one. Im glad they don't look and I haven't been forced to clear everything out.




Quoting TSNDDY:

If you need food stamps, yes you are poor. I don't understand how someone could need assistance and claim not to be poor?

Thank you. I understand the abuse of the system, but there are a lot more people that actually need it than there are people who abuse it. Maybe instead of taking it away there need to be stricter regulations.

um, yes that does mean you are poor. If you can't afford to feed your family, then you are poor. LOL

your spelling and grammar is awful and I could barely understand what you were trying to say, BUT, if you do make that much, you are abusing the system(unless you have 10 kids)

If you meet the income line for FS..then I'd say you are.

I mean...we are shit broke...all the time, but we make too much money to qualify for FS. :/
