My dh has a coworker. He makes $18 hour, my dh make a tad bit more. anyways he has this girlfriend who has 3 kids one of the kids is his. They refuse to get married because they will lose assistance if they did. So she gets close to 700 a month in food stamps, medicaid, wic and is now getting ssi on her 6 year old who has adhd.
I know all of this because she keeps telling me that i need to do what she did to get ssi. LIke i told my dh if i did what they did and lie i could get all of that too but i did things the right way, married my children father and use his income. Yes if i lied i could get an ssi check on my ds who has bipolar, ODD and ADHD.
I am not going to fuck the system and i think it is wrong to do so. NO i am not jealous because i don't need the extra, we are doing fine, we don't live above our means like they do.
I am also not bashing people on PA because there has been times i have had to receive PA myself but it is people like her that make everyone on PA seem like lazy moochers.
I am only making this post because i hate it when people tell me to lie to screw the system.
