FINALLY!  After over a month with fighting the two most dumb case workers I've EVER dealt with, we reapplied and we got our benefits back!!  I actually applied for Emergency FS and got them because this month was really bad. 

I am so happy we finally got them and we got $240.00 per month!  Now that Sams takes Snap, I'm over the moon!!

yay!!! after harassing customer service, they finally gave me the rest of mine (i only got fs for ds bc I hadnt filed child support yet, but even after I did its been like 3 months) so I just kept harassing the main cust. svc. bc the local office people suck, and their phone number goes to a full voicemail box...of course.

oh that sucks. did you have more income, or maybe your case worker did something diff and it gave you a lesser amount? the first few months I had FS my case worker (im on about my 3rd or 4th now  they just keep switiching me) had put in that i reported my income to be at 1200...um NO! It was actually $400..........i dont know where some of these people pull numbers out their butt crack.

I think I'm going to call and ask about that becauses last time we were getting $219 a month for food and now $98?!?!?  Less than half?!  Yeah, I'm gonna see what that's all about.

Congrats on getting them back, but boo to such a tiny amount!  We just finished a 4 month battle for childcare subsidy, and we got WAY less than I expected, so I feel your pain!
