No, I never received cash assistance. I lied by saying that my husband didn't live with me so only my funds were counted. I also used the fear of retaliation reason that they couldn't go after him for child support.

What did you lie about to get it? Was it cash assistance? Its hard to lie since welfare goes after the father fpr child support unless you lied to them..no bashing just curious

Quoting Anonymous:

I was taught honesty, and the kids don't know. I needed benefits once upon a time and it became addictive. Losing them caused anxiety so I lied to get them back. No justifying, just how it is.

when ever it comes time to reapply i call in sick or take an upaid days off and my husbands will also take unpaid days. We got fmla for a real condition so he won't get in trouble at work. The denied my day care by 12 dollars and cut my foodstamps so now we do this and it works ..all my state cares about is submitting one month of checks.

I work 20 hours a week on the books and the rest off the books so I can keep getting SNAP.  I guess I am one of the alleged "bad apples" contributing to the stereotype.  So are many of my neighbors.  I don't think the stereotypes are too far from the truth.

I work 50-60 hours a week, but have medical card for my son who has a congenital heart defect and myself as secondary (I have insurance through my employer as primary) only during pregnancy. I am currently receiving wic because I am off work due to high risk pregnancy and complications.
