    Anyone who was eligible for the first $1,200 stimulus check for a single individual (or more for a married couple with kids) gladly took it.

    The weird thing is that I was not eligible for the $1200 stimulus check but they still sent me food stamps unsolicited.

    The payment was put right into my checking account by direct deposit, same as my SS check.

    It is still in the account, it will go towards my 3k heating bill come this fall.

    In all those years I never collected unemployment, welfare, Medicaid, or food stamps.
    I understand where you are coming from - I spent a little time being homeless and did not ask for or get any assistance from the government, I have worked since I was 15 or so..never gotten unemployment, food stamps, disability, etc

    however... the state gives everybody that qualifies either free of reduced lunch.

    so every family that would have gotten reduced lunches is getting a Pandemic-EBT card - If I do not use it to buy food for my family the state will piss it away on something else

    I will use it and sleep well at night

    You made me curious as to what we paid last year. I shouldn’t have looked it up because I’m mad thinking about it. We paid more than the amount you disclosed.
