I don't think she is being anything more than curious. A lot of the time the dfs office can't tell what the amount will be until it happens.


 There are guidlines she could use to look it up but would rather come here for attention.

I'm trying really hard not to bash her. I mean, I had an unexpected pregnancy and I'm on welfare, but I'm going nuts! I hate being on welfare and I'm jumping up and down at the fact that my boss offered me my old job back from 7 years ago tonight. She offered it to me an hour ago and I'm freaking out and already trying to figure out ways of how to get my kids day care taken care of. I don't care what it takes, I'm going back to work! I don't understand why some other people can't figure out that they'd make more money working (even if it is minimum wage) than they would on welfare. I calculated it...even working part time I would make just as much as I do right now on TANF, however I will be receiving my full child support again, which means that I will be making over $500.00 more, technically than I am on TANF right now...I mean, I just don't get it.

Quoting horseap:

 Well now why would she want to do that?  She would make more money and not get as much food stamps!  DUH.

Quoting Oceana09:

I'm not bashing you..I'm just asking a question...have you applied for daycare help? They will help you will full time daycare. Just FYI.

Yes I work part time because we can't afford full time day care and my husband makes 730ish a week but its not taxed as he is considered a independent worker. Some months he makes only 400 a month. I don't know why we get so much I told the DFS Workers we didn't need so much but they said they had to give me the amount on the chart that they couldn't reduce them out of want

We make about $1600 a month and only get $387 a month is fs for a family of 4. We rather get the food stamps than the child care assistance. Why have the state pay $1600 a month in child care for us? We are constantly looking for better jobs though. Our income has been steadily increasing. We were receiving $581 in fs and then $468 and now $387 as our income has gone up.

Right now I have Mirena, my husband still wears a condom and pulls out.  I know I cannot afford another baby so we do not take any chances.  If you say you guys where doing all that then I will say that you where trying not to get pregnant.  You know Mirena is not 100%, why take the chance if you are doing so bad financially?


Quoting Anonymous:

And yes I am pregnant, I did not mean to be I was on mirana.
Put I am pregnant now what do you want me to do to abort?
I get foodstamps so this child doesn't deserve to live?
