So what about child support? If for example, I have a son and I get $200 a month child support. No other income can I get assistance? Will I get a medical card also? Will they take the child support payments that come in?
How long can you get this assistance for?

I'm sorry for sounding harsh, Lilmom. After I re-read my post, I sounded rude, and I'm sorry for that.. Can you perhaps call one of the numbers listed then? I realize that you'll more than likely be put on hold for ages (unfortunately), but I think you'd get more credible and straight forward answers if you speak to them yourself. You know how these threads can be. From what the web site states, I think you can even make an appointment with them if it's convenient for you. These agencies don't work quickly which is another unfortunate fact..

My stupid ex wife told me that once she was on ktap they took her child support so that my kid could have a medical card. I was mad because she kept calling me asking me for money and saying that she needed it because they were taking the child support now. Well I was sure as hell stil paying it. I have good insurance on my kid through my employment so why would my kid benefit from ktap if they took the child support I always pay in?
Sounds like a excuse to sit on her ass and ask me for more money. Somethings and ex wifes never change!

For a family of two food stamps won't be all that much, but it will help. You should qualify for medical assistance. My daughter used KTAP for awhile and she was not allowed to keep any child support money. But sometimes the rules don't apply to everybody.

i just applied for K-TAP and food stamps. but you HAVE to apply for child support even if you dont want to and you HAVE to send your child support money to the child support department because it pays the state back. UNLESS you have a good reason not to. i dont know why they do this because i dont want child support since we have an agreement. but thats just how it is. i hope i answered any questions.

I'm doing research on KTAP and have found out that people are getting all this welfare money, not even trying to look for a job, living with the children's father who is supporting their household and STILL getting the KTAP with child support included. Is that right... I just think people who can work, really should and not lie about their living arrangements while they live with the noncustodial parent and they mooch more money of the government. That's how we got into the mess we are in, or some of it anyway.
