I am writing in a tracfone my parents to pay . Its hard to write , sorry for grammatical errors ... I have 21 years and my parents to pay my health insurance and tracfone this, including $ 30 per month for medicines . Other than that , they are in too much debt to help pay for anything . I live with a friend who can not afford to feed me. I do not get any subsidies from going to school full time, but I had to drop a class . I have interstitial cystis bad and can not work . I can not even handle four classes because I am weak and malnourished . My IC is worse , probably because I'm not eating . I borrow to pay for school and what is the use of spare to pay for food and gas money for my walk (I have a car ) . I do not know if I can receive disability payments because I go to school , so I have . So: I can not get food stamps ?

I worked as a social worker for food stamps about 10 years ago and at that time a person who was a college student and work could not qualify for food stamps. The government has also launched a job requirement , basically saying that a person had to work the equivalant of the federal minimum wage x 20 hours a week to receive food stamps unless they were disabled , over 50 , or have children under a certain age . MedlinePlus These provisions in the laws rarely change , but all I can do is apply for food stamps. But if I were you , I would be applying for SSI and Medicaid benefits in the state you reside in.

It sounds to me as if you should apply for SSI if you have a disability ( no cystitis) and food stamps students remain eligible for welfare.

In some states , you can not get food stamps if used Fin aid ( Pell Grants , student loans , including Vocational Rehabilitation, WIA , etc. .. ) to go to school - to have your support as income Fin ... despite the fact that registration is used to
MedlinePlus Similarly, some other states specifically exclude the Fin Aid used to pay school costs ( tuition, fees , etc ) MedlinePlus MedlinePlus MedlinePlus So check with your state to find out if college students using Fin Helps pay classes are allowed to be on food stamps ---- I encourage you to at least apply for Food Stamps and find out MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Same with SSI .... apply and see MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Have you tried Voc Rehab to help in school ?
