Yes, the person above is correct...each State is allotted a certain amount of monies for thier welfare program and if you collect money from one state to spend in another, that is considered fraud. If and when it catches up to you...you will certainly be prosecuted and/or have to repay any monies you recieved. Bottom line, its not worth it...re-apply when you get settled in your new state...you should also consider speaking to your current case worker to see if it is possible to transfer your case to another state...that way any necessary adjustments can be made by your new center and there will not be an interruption of your benefits...Good Luck!
No, you will not receive your welfare benefits if you move out of state. medicaid and welfare are state run programs and have to be given to state residents. If you move, you will have to reapply in that state.
