Thats what I thought . I have seen this one person in BSG that gets Food Stamps and has drug charges on her. Its none of my business but I think that is taken away from the ones that need them.

Nope that's not to fair, unless she wast convicted of the drug charge. Must be lying on her app & they haven't checked it out. Any drug charges people r not supposed to get any assistance. Hud included too.

Thats what I think she is doing. She had lied before to HUD about her boyfriend not living there and was caught but I know she gets Food Stamps.

It depends if they have kids or not. If the courty system thinks they're clean enough to have their children they can recieve the benefits from the Government to help their children.

She lost her child to her ex so I think she may be lying on her app. But I would think SS would know they sure know everything about your life. I dont like being mean about it its just Ive seen people that need them not get them and I dont think its fair.

I know for a fact that if you are a convicted felon (drug related) you can still receive HUD and assistance such as food stamps, medicaid, etc. I was convicted back in 2004 and received all of that after my ex-husband put me in the hospital. I never lied at all on any application. Don't know the rules now but then, you could receive all of that. Thank God I turned my life around and got clean. No more assistance needed for this girl!

Im happy for you Wait. Im glad everything is working out for you now. I was told by a convicted felon that she couldnt get any assisance because of her record and thats why I was asking. This girl I have been talking about has been in trouble numerous times and still has an active record. I know that HUD finally found out about her them BF was living with her and they had to pay back everything that HUD paid out. She is nothing but a liar and a theif.
