Please no bashing but I've come across very hard times and had to apply for food stamps. I got my letter today saying I was approved for expedited benefits and am getting $298 for November. There was another column that said I was eligible for dec through April and the amount it had was $550. Now it that per month till April or for the whole time till April

I would think that was a month. You are only getting 2 something now because the month is half over

They prorate so I would think the $298 is just this month and the $550 will be until your 6 month reup. They dropped mine by $30 when we make a lot less than before. Doesn't make any sense. But good luck!
