Yes you can receive Food Stamps with an IRA. In the last couple of years rules were changed that no longer consider an IRA as part of your assets.

In California, convicted drug felons cannot receive food stamps (or SNAP as it is now called). Not sure about other kinds of felonies. If someone has their record ex…punged, they can receive assistance again and will be eligible from the time that their record is expunged, provided that they meet all of the other requirements. the issue was addressed in an All County Letter dated 9/23/1999.

Yes, food stamps is a federal program and federal law does not prohibit a previously convicted person from receiving food stamps.
Legally, never. You either get Food Staps, like a coupon book , or more likely an EBT card , like a debit card. To abuse either one is a Federal cime. Use as directed.
No. These two programs have different eligibility rules and income/asset standards.
NO...not in GA anyway. You are automatically denied for being a "law breaker", however your income does count. Even if you have sucessfully completed jail, rehab and probation… you are not eligible.

Yes, your foodstamps will always come on the date specified. Unless there is a glitch in system, this rarely happens, you will have to wait until the next day.

If he steals 'em, yeah.
Yes you can. They will determine your foodstamp value after you give them your award letter from unemployment.

You have to apply to the government of your region, and usually they require from you data concerning your salary (if any), social security number, ID, and other such data. In… the US the food stamp program is called SNAP.
