I get 897 a month cash and my rent is 500 and completely payed for so thats 1397, then I get 170 in food stamps so 1567, then I also get 3 $450 heap payments a year and completely free medical. I was thinking of going back to work but what would be the equivelant? i habe close to 20,000 a year in cash and stamps tax free and i know the medical is what close to 10,000 a year so I would say thats close to 30,000 a year tax free. That wouls be like making what close to 40,000 a year or so , on the books. I know I can work but unless i exceed thwt much would be foolish to accept anything less, I mean come on i got a free ride truthfully have to make over 50 K on books to give this life... Who would throw that away for less!

Complete apin in the ass but worth it in the long run, if you alrwady have a residence would be harder. I had to be homeless, so when i moved from living with my ex I went to dss and told them I was homeless, they would give me vouchers for a hotel, then i applied for Shelter Plus Care in Utica, I had to do that for 3 weeks, everyday getting a voucher and telling them I had no place to daty. I seems REALLY hard and it was but think about it 500 a month thats 6000 a year for LIFE!!! Short term sucked but huge payoff once it was done!! They covered the Security Deposit and will pay for an Apartment up to $550 a month and that is for life!!!

And you need to be one lazy bastard to enjoy that lifestyle. And in reality you probably don't really live this way. But if you do, grab your ass because after the first of the year, your benefits and going to crash.

Not lazy at all. I love to fish, boat, hunt. I have many hobbies and keep busy most of the time. By the grace of GOD I was labeled retired, by 2 Doctors and A federal Judge. Whether you would admit it or not but most people that made similar incomes in there careers and were offered what I am getting would jump on it in a minute. I make a VERY decent wage for around here! My benfits are guarenteed , I am RETIRED! Possibly my Medicare could be decreased but not my SSDI, actually in January I am scheduled for my cost of living increase. yes I do live this way, not made up.

I have to agree with the original poster. This lifestyle can be very comfortable if done correctly. I met a girl who is on Shelter Care Plus. She lives in a VERY nice place and her rent is totally covered. She gets $200 in food stamps each month. So do I. Plus a small cash allowance. Not to mention free medical and prescriptions. All that stuff adds up. We live better then most people I know that work 40 hours a week at decent jobs.

This is why we are becoming a Welfare State - live off our Government at the taxpayer's expense and have NO SELF PRIDE.

ALL of you are nothing more than parasites.

What a boring life you must lead.

Do you also let people know how humiliating it is to sit in the Welfare Offices every 3 months to get recertfied?

You all are a bunch of losers.

It's all done by mail. And it's every 6 months I think? I could be wrong. But completely worth the effort for the benefits received. Personally, I do it for the medical. I get everything for free. Glasses, scripts, office visits, etc... Although I have a car, if I didn't I could get free taxi rides to all my appointments. They even sent me 2 Obama phones. Not sure why I have 2 but the new one gives me text ability too. Just need a way to get my internet paid for. I have to cover that expense :(

the satisfaction and sweetness of working hard for a goal and attaining it. YOUR THE PROBLEM. Shelter Care Plus is misused and has been for the longest time. most people who get SCP are not homeless but make themselves that way so they can get the benefit. however, along with that benefit you have to either be labled a drug addict or mentally ill. your a scumbag retire and will go to your grave know that you abused the system - what a legacy to leave behind. you'll probably be duried in potter's field - that's free also. you make me sick.

I am mentally ill, I get Xanax I suffer from anxiety. If anyone gets ANY depression meds, anxiety meds, Mood stabilizers, they ARE Mentally ill! Even if you are simply diagnosed with anxiety you ARE mentally ill. I didn't make the rules I just applied for the benefits and i got them. Don't hate on me hate the system. I get to spend all my time with my kids, fishing, swimming, boating, enjoying life. Why would I not take advangatge of such an advantageous situation? I only live once and I am enjoying it! You can disagree all you want as i said I didn't create the system just in it. One Love!

Oh yea i forgot 1 more service they provide to me, While heap covers all my heat 3 times a year $450, If I dont pay my Electric bill every 2 months or so I get a shut off notice and when I bring that down to DSS they pay that as well, not a lot of money but it adds up! Also Medicare has a service alot of people don't know about, if you ask them they will send you a mileage voucher and ALL doctors appointments and Mental Health appointments are covered both ways. Not alot 24 Cents a mile think. I have an average of 2 appointments a week so thats another $50 a month or so.

This is why you have been diagnosed as Mentally Ill - your thinking and thought process is as nuts as you are.

Actually I want to be cremated , e state pays for that as well. Also one benefit thats cool is every kid I have i get $250 more a month well, for the child of course. NEVER have to pay child support, I could have 0 kids wth 0 different girls and never pay a dime but they get $250 a month for 18 years. Because I'm disabed, Not tat i'm going to do this but it if a benefit. Why would you hate someone for being disabled? Sound sliek jealousy, that you have to go to work all summer while 'm at the beach. I didn't make these laws and benefits, I just applied for them and recive them. I AM disabled if Iwasn't eligable I wouldn't get them. I d like it though, I worked alot of years and became disabled so I just get to reture 20 years ahead of the norm is all. Not my faul the system has their rules n place, I didn't reate them.
