I must have pissed somebody off. They cut my food stamps from $148 monthly to $30 monthly. I have a lot of food stamps built up in reserve, though. That should help me while I’m on the street. I also got this sheet of paper listing a lot of dates when I was eligible for medicare, and it ran out in December of 2017. I doubt if they can keep me at the assisted living center where I live if I don’t have medicare. I gave up my patreon account, and I am going to forgo my computer connection too on May 14. That will let me build up some money. I will put that money on a couple of debit cards, and will help buy things I’ll need on the street.
I wouldn’t settle and live on the streets.
Go talk with the Social Security Administration and fight to remain on Medicare.
See an Attorney if you have to but don’t give up so easily.
How can you not be eligible for food stamps if you are nearly on the street? Did you go in and talk to them? Something is clearly wrong in their records. You must be eligible for Medicare if you were before. What has changed since you were getting food stamps and Medicare?
I am really sorry to hear you are dealing with this stress. I think you need to go in and talk to the State about food stamps and the Social Security office about Medicare.
That’s true. If I go back out on the street my food stamp allotment should increase. Maybe I could talk to people about it. Having it run out in September gives me a little time.
Arent u on ssdi ? If so u should be eligible for Medicare and if not there is other insurance options out there you could go on Medicaid which is free if you have low enough income.
You should get a case manager they will help with all of the problems u are having right now.
I hope everything works out.
You’re right. I have time. I’m going to cut all my obligations on the internet, just in case I end up on the highway sooner than expected. I have a couple of debit cards I pay my internet bills with, and I’m giving up my on line service and the patreon account I contribute to. I can re-establish these relationships if I feel secure enough where I am staying.
