I think my food stamp problems may be coming to a resolution soon. I finally talked to the person who looks over your application and comes up with the dollar amount. I told her that nothing has changed and if anything we are doing worse so why were we decreased?
She said, “Because you don’t have dependent care”.
“My son is in daycare”.
“But why when neither of you is working?”
I explained to her that we were both disabled, going through the disability process and she said if we could get doctors’ notes to attest to this then we may even qualify for more stamps than before!
There are notes from doctors in our file but none specifically stating that we can not care for Tyler on a 24 hour/7 day a week basis.
It just shows that it pays to call, advocate for yourself, ask questions, because no one else is going to do it for you.
Hoping this follow-up goes smoothly!
