I hvae been trying to.get it since the begining of May. My dh lost his job. Then at the end of may i lost mine. They lost my paperwork twice then my case worker called and asked if anything in our case had changed since we applied the beginning of may and i said ya im not working now. So i had to fax in paperwork about that today. If it wasnt for.my dad getting us groceries we would have starved by now. Has anyone else had this much trouble?

It is hard.  They need to verify your income(or lack of income).

I understand it's pretty standard to get the run-around in the hopes you'll drop it.

It's a pain in the ass really. They don't send you important notices in time, lose your paperwork, claim they never got paperwork that you personally put into their hands 4 times... jeez, I'm glad for the help, but the system is seriously flawed.

First i mailed because they said you have to mwil it now. Then thry said they lost it. Several weeks later. So then i did it in person. Waited again and the office lost it. Then my caseworker calls friday she magically found it and now they want another form and she gave me her fax number to send it to her today which i did
