How long does it take to receive cash assistance ?

I applied for cash assistance and food stamps and i recieved my food stamps already but at social services they make me take a T.A.B.E. test at the local GED adult learning center and i did so does the cash start to process after the test was taken or does that not matter?

I don't really think the test should matter that much in that process. It usually takes about thirty to sixty days to complete the whole process, unless it's an emergency.

Should not have had a kid if you can't afford it. Not right for the tax payers to pay for your bills...

Omg you all are harsh. Maybe her job doesn't pay maternity leave. If she has a job and pays taxes, she is only getting assistance that she helped pay into anyways. Nice to judge when you don't know.

30-60 is usually correct. You should get a mailing about 10 days after decision is made, then benefits start soon after.
