I have a question out there for the women who have done this. Currently I am living here in LA and I receive medicaid as well as foodstamps. I receive these benefits because I am in school and used to have a part time job, but was unfortunately laid off. I am about 5 months pregnant right now and am on the verge of relocating to a different state with my fiance. I have worked thus far into my pregnancy but because of the extreme back pain I will not have a job. Although I do plan on going back to work part time 6 wks after the baby is born.

My fiance makes about 515 dollars a week and according to the state we will be living in, we will not be eligible for foodstamps. I am tempted to put that I live with a room mate but at the same time I am sure the foodstamp office will ask how I am making ends meet and I will not have an answer as I dont have any income, but I do have some savings.

My question is how can I live w/ my fiance and still receive benefits. I know there has to be some other kind of way around the system.

You're on a public forum, asking for ways to cheat the system?

Good luck with that. Seriously....I hope you find a way to do exactly what you're trying to do....then I hope they nail your ass for it.

First, I am sorry to hear of your health problems. I hope your back pain resolves and that you have a healthy baby.

Second, SHAME ON YOU for looking for a way "around the system." You do know that you would be breaking the law, don't you?

Finally, tell your fiance to get off his butt and find a second job. Your baby is his responsibility as much as yours, and he needs to BE A MAN and go the extra mile to get his family past this temporary rough spot.

Finally (part two), hang in there with your schooling. You need to be prepared for whatever life brings you, and education is crucial.

Well said!
If assistance is needed, it's needed. But if someone wants a way "around the system," they obviously don't need it and need to reassess their priorities.
It takes a lot of gall to come onto a public forum and ask fellow taxpayers how to best steal their money.

Wow! "Curious" are you related to Becky Fredieu? this sounds like what she has going on! Becky has her son enrolled @ St. Mary's and living in a hud house in Natchitoches. You white women need to have some respect and stop thinking it is o.k. to live with your "Men" and get food stamps and live in government housing.
First of all, what's wrong with wanting to give your child the best possible education available? And I notice you call this person out for being "white". And its a good thing black folks around here are so law abiding, hard working and NEVER accept gov't handouts- some people might take issue with a black person faulting a white woman for this.

you are not married that is why you have medicaid...that is also why you have food stamps...just because you live with him doesn't change anything.
you are still not married... you have no income...
say your brother/sister is going to give you about 100$ a week to buy shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste.
this sibling will have to write a letter stating they will give you about 100$ a week for you & the baby's needs until you can get back to work. Then they sign the letter & leave a phone number.
The FS office may call this person but then they just say " yes, I give her 100$ a week to support her.
then mark off that you & " fiance" prepare meals seperatley.

they won't do that, she still isn't married & it isn't her income until they are married.

You, and people like you, are one of the reasons this country is broke. Too many parasites.

Whose fault is it that she is a "Pregnant" single mother? Why should us working people pay for her to shack up with her boyfriend and rec benefits from the government? Sounds like she should have thought about all this before now. I have no sympathy for folks like this!

Thanks for the advice. I will be sure to do this. Should I list that I live by myself or that we live together? Also will I need to get a letter or something from him saying that I pay a certain amount in rent?=)

say you live together but prepare meals separate & will give him about 50$ a week for staying there.
you're not married to him & not sure if the relationship will work out but he is providing with a place to stay & you will give him some money to stay there.
yes he will need to write a letter stating this & sign his name & give his phone number in case your FS case worker should call to verify.

Typical Negro. You can have it so you don't want anybody to have it. Hahaha. Shut the hell up there's thousands of dollars worth of free $hit made available to you simply because of the color of your skin if you choose not to accept it that's your dumb a$$ so nobody cares what you think
