Re: “The Food Stamp Challenge

People who are disabled adults who have never reported taxes over the years or not paid in enough taxes through work only qualify for a flat $500.00 SSI and are can are eligible for the max amount of food stamp money while disabled adults who have worked $10.00 jobs and paid in enough taxes are eligible for SSDI and receive no food stamp help. If people on SSDI have thousands of dollars of medical bills depending on the case worker if they "like you" one might get $10.00. If both these different catagories of disabled people had children under 18 years old then they would be eligible for $500.00 a pop, per child. The disabled adults commonly receive a few more dollars than SSI disabled qualifing individuals yet the way to qualify for it all, hands down is with SSI. I never met anyone who ever wants to be in these situations only people who have late in life, become disabled through mental, emotional, and/or physical illness, injuries both chronic or terminal. Point is, if you get disabled you will draw $40 percent of your worked income the money you would also retire on, so; 40% of that will put you in the poverty level yet you won't quailify for much, in sense, you would be drawing your retirement early and disabled. They are also trying to change that people who qualify are only people with children. It makes me wonder the elders and single people are going to put on the front line in a sense, shot down and eliminated.
