I always get it on the first, unless there is a problem with certification etc. Today is the second and it still hasn't shown up. Do I Shlep down to my case worker (a 2 hour trip) or give it more time? Of course noone picks up the phone there.

Argghhh

TIA!

ARGHHH! Just spent 3 hours in the food stamps office, just to be told that they are behind on cases and they dont know when it will go through. What a ridiculous program. Dont they understand that the people on it dont have the money to lay out until they "backdate" the funds.
Wish there was a higher-up I could call. We really need the money for food.

thats why I asked you if you re-certified thats what is happening to me
they are behind and I might not get it for over a month. I totally agree with you
I b"h have a large family and can't spend so much on food until I get it.
this is the 2nd time it happened to me it also happened last year when I re-certified.

OP;
Yes, I had this last year too.
I had a phone interview mid-September, and Oct 1 it renewed, so I assumed that it went through. Now I found out that they were so behind on the rectification, that they issued the Oct money anyways. No word on Nov money , though.
Since when are you waiting? Thinking of calling the mayor here its ridiculous to make people that have no money for food wait 3 months every year for certifications!

Happened to me in Pa. Didnt get food stamps Sep or Oct-yomtov time. Now they gave me all 3 months worth. Nice, but I cant use it to pay my mortgage with! That money was spent on food.

Almost feel like calling Menashe Miller's office. Is that insanely petty?

Yeah, turns out our casework went on medical leave, so our file just sat there after we sent in the additional information she asked for. After dh finally reached a supervisor, our file was given to another worker and in 2 days we had our letter of approval.

Now I can get fat, I just may not have a roof over my head Confused

I'm in NY but I had this issue once and I called the supervisor. Turned out my caseworker was out on medical leave too. The supervisor gave it to someone else and it was resolved in 2 days. I keep the supervisor's number handy now... Very Happy

OP here;
The office is so difficult to contact, I highly doubt I would ever get through to a supervisor. My case worker is basically useless. I saw she couldn't care less, and was not going to process my case any quicker because I came down. I asked for a supervisor while I was there, and they made it seem like there was none. I didnt want to make a Chilul Hashem since they obviously know I am Frum..
