OK so our family income is less than $20 over the income cutoff for us to be eligible for foodstamps. difficult child turned 18 and has now gotten to continue on as our dependant - disabled before age 18- as a dependant under husband soc sec disability. SO- she continues to get the same as she got previous to turning 18. I already complained the VA did NOT agree and did NOT find her to be disabled---and denied sending us the paltry stipend they send for children....and also denied her ChampVA health coverage. ANd I am not sure, but- I know at least for NOW she cannot get Medicare- I am not sure how that will work, even after 2 years? Maybe she will get Medicare in 2 years. SO- we applied for Medicaide on her behalf........and at same office you can also apply for food stamps. SO- HER income is well within the guidelines to get foodstamps. BUT turns out up till age 22 they will count OUR income as well, and well.our income is $20 over the yearly guideline. SO- she CANNOT get foodstamps. ANd it remains to be seen what they will do with her application for Medicaide. SO soc sec made me rep payee.......for those benefits......and VA has basically said too bad........even tho we do get a small stipend for our other 2 children and that is where our insurance coverage comes from..........and the food stamp thing just further confuses me.
