Welfare Qualifications?


In a struggling economy, more people are turning to welfare for support. Fortunately, there are many different types of welfare available to those in need, even if it is a temporary need. Some federal services include: Food Stamps, Medicaid, Low-Income Housing through HUD, Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF), Child and adult care assistance, and Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

In order to qualify for many of these services, you must show that there is a financial need, though qualifications will vary for each program. Some qualifications include gross and net income, family size, and crisis situations such as medical issues, pregnancy, homelessness, or unemployment.

In addition to federally-funded programs, each state also offers unemployment benefits and other services. To find out more about your local welfare services, find your state resources at http://www.welfareinfo.org/welfare-resources/
