Q: I sent in re-certification for Food Stamps application and have not heard from anyone in a month. (Randolph )
by Concerned
Q: Why the heck dies the Goverment or the social service warn us about the glitches in the system that they know will cause delays. We may be able to plan ahead instead of one day be shocked to have no food. I live in Transylvania county NC . I had to recertify for Foodstamps for this month, Oct. which I did as fast as I got the paper work, I turned it in. I dud not receive the usual letter of approval. Today is the 7th of Oct my card has zero balance. It should have been deposited on the 5th. I have a severeral disabled medically fragile child who I am the sloe caregiver of. Opi have stayed at home and took care of him, I can't work outside the home. Before he became disabled I worked several jobs. His meducaud has also been messed up since July the 1st. Because of the new N.C tracks software program, he's 9 and they have him listed as adult cap instead of cap c. For children. I struggle everyday now the worry of from the ignorance of our Goverment, thank you n.C Governer you knew this was going to happen and you pushed for it to all go live, and iron out the glitches later. Of course that does not affect you and your family. Disgusted in our politicians, they have out the USA to shame in so many areas.
