Winter is Here
I got my answers to my applications for Food Stamps and State Health Insurance in the mail today.
I got turned down for health insurance based on my GROSS monthly income, which the mouth-breather entered incorrectly and supposedly why I got denied.
I got accepted for the Food Stamp program based on my NET monthly income. Not sure why one is taken from the gross and the other from the net, I can only imagine it's so that it's possible to turn people down for insurance more easily, since the costs are clearly larger than food costs.
Regardless, as I said in my previous post, I was approved today and these denials are invalid now. What adds to the whole wtf day I've had, the approval letter is almost more ridiculous than the denial.
Yep, according to the letter I am eligible for $16.00 a month in food stamps.
