NYS food stamps
Does anyone here live in NY and get food stamps? My disability is coming in, and it's $120(EDIT: my math skills fail) less a week then my normal pay. Because of that, I want to go down and see about getting food stamps or some form of assistance till I can go back to work. Alot of people told me prior to this that when I apply, to say I;m the only one in the house or that I have a roommate, and NOT to mention that my roommate is my boyfriend. I just looked at an online calculator and did it twice, once with just my disability income and half the rent, and again with the total household income and full rent. By myself I qualify, together, we don't. I currently get the FPBP for birth control and they never asked for household income, just mine. I called my case worker the other day and all she said was to go down and apply, so I'll do that on monday. I don't want to get in trouble for frauding the goverment, but everyone seems to be under the same idea that since we're not married I don't have to report his income.
