Finally got back on here

For some reason yesterday, this site was giving me problems getting on last night and finally able to get back on here to ask you ladies a question about something.

I am trying to get some help for Ashley and I because we need a little more help. My question for you ladies is, where or what kind of money help can I get? I ask my boyfriends Aunt that works for the government what kind of help I can get, and she says I can get a ssi(social security supplemental income) because Ashley is a bit delayed with certain things. If there any other ways I get get anymore help through the government that I can apply for?? If you ladies can give me any ideas, they will help out a bunch. Thanks.

    I'm not sure about other things either. I hope you find what you're looking for though. One thing you can do is GoFundMe too. Not government, but may help.

    Oh, yes, I totally forgot about Early Invention. My son has that and we are trying to get it for my step-daughter with Downs.

    And if your child has medicaid or medical, the services will be paid by the insurance and not you.

      It was messing up for me yesterday. First it said it wasn't secure and now it is secure. It was so annoying. But, I am glad you are back. :) How was your weekend?
      There is:
      WIC
      Cash assistance (I believe it is called SNAP?)
      Food stamps
      And maybe free or affordable health care. The social services office and WIC office will be able to help you out and point you in the right direction.
      For your daughter to get SSI, you will need a doctor's note or her prognosis and fill out the online forms. If you are declined, you can file an appeal and should qualify for a free lawyer or one where you only pay them if you win the case.

      At least I wasn't the only one that couldn't get on here.

      We have her on WIC right now along with the food stamps they will give me for her. I am not so sure on the Cash assistance. Tried to ask someone about that but told me I have to find a job along with that but I rather stay at home and take care of Ashley while her father goes off and works.

      I apply for the SSI for her today and just have to call them tomorrow or Tuesday to ask them to mail me the information they need me to sign to release Ashley records from the doctors office.

      Thanks a bunch for the information Melissa. Would of never thought of appealing the case of she was declined.
