I applied for SNAP and Medicaid almost a month ago

I applied for SNAP benefits and Medicaid almost a month ago, I was told I would be notified in 7-10 days. Last week, I called since no one had notified me yet, I was told I had a phone interview for SNAP the next day, but that my Medicaid case was still pending. I was informed they were behind about a week because computer system had been down. I was also told I needed to speak to Ms. Wilson about Medicaid, I was transferred and left a message. STILL no response, called again today, since still nothing in mail or no telephone call, & now I’m told that my case doesn’t exist?!? How can that be? It existed the other 3 times I have called to check, and I have a piece of paper from the office showing what was turned in…I was given a supervisor to speak with today, but another voicemail, and again another no return call. How are things with such sensitive information on them getting lost in a government office? I am diabetic, and need medication. Just moved to the state where I have applied for SO MANY jobs, but don’t have one yet. I need help, and I need someone in that office to do their job and return my call.

  1. Yesterday I was on hold for 55 minutes trying to apply for food stamps. All to be hung up on it was 4pm and they get off 430 that was pretty rude. So I called back and waited 10 minutes to make a appointment for today and they said they would call me at 1030 today and it’s going on 11AM now and still no call. Maybe you guys shouldn’t have the program if you can’t run right. The girl name was Tabby she was very rude.

  1. I have applied for medical & food stamp assistance. I have two young kids & a pregnant girlfriend. I was told it would take 7 to 10 days to get my food stamp card in the mail. Here it is over a month later, & I haven’t received anything!! I have turned in all the paper work that was requested! Why have I not got any word of any kind regarding my benefits? I’m unemployed with no money in the bank, I could really use some help!!! Thank you!

  2. Stay in touch with your caseworker if you feel your application is taking too long or you aren’t getting communication from him or her. However, if you weren’t alerted by your caseworker that you needed to turn in further verification of your circumstances, the fault lies with him or her. The United States Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Service specifically outlines how long an application should take to be reviewed but, unfortunately, it isn’t always so simple. Are you sure you completed the application? This isn’t easy, as caseworkers may not return phone calls. Did you turn in all necessary paperwork? If no one is contacting you, go to the office and request a hearing, either by filling out hearing paperwork or just by writing “I request a hearing” and your signature on a piece of paper and turning it in to the office. Sometimes going through the food stamp application process turns into a long waiting game. If this happens, contact your caseworker’s supervisor, and if that doesn’t work, contact the supervisor’s supervisor. In addition to this, every application is supposed to be screened immediately to see whether or not the applicant is eligible for “expedited” services, or emergency help. A hearing officer who has nothing to do with your case will listen to both sides and make a fair decision If the applicant is eligible, the case must be approved within seven days and benefits disbursed in the same time frame. Your case can remain “pending,” or undecided, for much longer than it should. If the decision on your food stamp application is still pending and it’s been longer than 30 days since you applied, someone is at fault. Your case should be decided within 30 days of applying. A lack of complete information could be a reason for the delay. Always stay in touch with your caseworker to make sure he or she has all the information needed and to find out why your case is being delayed.
