    What questions will they ask at an in person food stamp interview?

    My friend filled out her application and got a notice from DSS that she was to report to the office (no appointment needed) for an in person interview.  What questions will they ask her?  Thanks!

     She should bring proofs of everything she wrote down- mostly her and anyone else in the house's paystubs, any unemployment or pensions, proofs of assets, vehicles, rent or mortgage, utility bills, etc

    They will take copies of all this and get back to her with a decision.  The more she thinks to bring, the less she'll have to copy at her cost and mail in!

    When I applied, perhaps it was 3 years ago, I had to bring in 2 proofs of identity -- (1) a passport or Social Security card, & (2) a driver's license or State I.D. card.  Yours in Him, Deb  (I assume that you would need a birth certificate for childrenwho don't have these proofs; it should be a certified-by-the-Staet birth certificate, not the one that the hospital gave you.  It's a good idea, as you know, to get an Social Security card for each child at birth.)

     Yes- Birth certificates for everyone, driver's liscenses for adults.  My oldest doesn't have a liscense, I brought her passport.

    Mortgage or lease, assets, home equity loans, car tab bill for cars to establish value of cars, utility bills, outstanding medical bills- the list goes on and on, I bring my whole filing folder I keep for taxes.  It's cheaper to overbring than to have to copy yourself-

     Also take amount of out-of-pocket medical expenses you may have, and any transportation fees you have for children and health-care appointments.

     

    I hope it goes through for you.
