Thinking about applying for food stamps
I finally managed to get a permanent job but it's part-time and it's only $1+ more than minimum wage in Virginia. I have enough to pay all my monthly bills on time (which was a big concern), but I barely have enough to buy groceries. I'm interested in applying for food stamps since I think I'm eligible. My main concern, however, is will applying for food stamps affect my credit? I have decent credit right now but I'd hate for it to be ruined because I'm running into hard times :( Also, to those that have applied for food stamps, what type of information did you provide to social services for proof of eligibility? Mine is asking for residence info and income. Would providing my last pay stub, my lease, and my current bank statements be good enough?
