Disability and Food Stamps
Again, some more very bad information from a forum:
"If eligible, you might also want to apply for Food Stamps. That will need to be paid back out of the lump sum check, but you will have some benefits while waiting."
Absolutely incorrect. The social security administration's disability programs (social security disability and SSI disability) have absolutely nothing to do with programs administered by the department of social services, such as food stamps. In fact, as a former disability examiner and as a former food stamp caseworker, I can definitively state there is no connection between these two programs. Moreover, individuals who receive this type of assistance are never required to pay anything back.
Good grief. Sometimes you have to wonder about these forums.
