Asking for proof of age, residents, and earned income.

Sounds normal right?

Well what if I say no one in my house has applied for help?

4 years ago, my son and I was on temporary help. As I was a single mother who lost her job. We was on help for 2 months, till I had held my job for a month. (I wanted to make sure I got everything caught up, without having to worry about food.) I then went down to office and got off the foodstamps. Kept medical till I was able to get it thur work. (4 months.) Once I got that taken care of, I went and got off it.
I then met my husband, moved, and got married.

Out of no where I get this, in the paperwork, it also has my new address listed, my husband listed, his employer, and my new employer.

Call the number provided in the paperwork and inform them that you have not applied for assistance. Someone could be using your address to commit welfare fraud, it's best you get this sorted out.

They did that to me once for food stamps. We were off of them for a long while then they randomly sent me this paper work. I ignored it though and they never sent me another thing for it or called.

Call them? That's odd. I wonder if someone is trying to commit fraud with your name.

I would look up the number online and call it.... Just in case it's done sort of scam. That way I know for sure I'm calling the fs office. Them you can explain to them.

In this day and age with all the fraud I don 't think I would ignore it. OP I would follow up to make sure someone isn't using your name/identity to claim benefits.

Good idea. That's really strange. :)
