    Only a few states are waivered. Most states the abawd is in effect and you can't get stamps for more then 3 months every 3 years.

    Its when they try to get you to be part of the wage slave mega-machine so you will no longer qualify for food stamps. Or they just say "fuck you! times up --- you've sucked off the system too long."

    You know, basic work requirement stuff. But the PDFs listed are referencing state waivers where you can get out of work requirements & their limits on your SNAP qualifications.

    Beating the "3 month" rule without doing job search:

    Step 1
    Acquire Medicaid

    Step 2
    Find Medicaid mental health provider

    Step 3
    Attend regular therapist sessions, have a psyche eval

    Step 4
    Acquire "general anxiety disorder" diagnosis (it's easy peasy, even if you think you don't have it, you probably do)

    Step 5
    Have benefits medical exemption form filled out by your therapist

    Step 6
    Turn it in when you reapply for food stamps, make sure to say you have 0 income and 0 capitol holdings

    You've now acquired 6 month allotments of SNAP, which just require renewal with another medical exemption from.

    I get maximum single male PA monthly benefits now after doing this.

    This...same here. I went to a therapist and just unloaded about what an anxious, depressed socially awkward nutjob I am and how that’s undermined me keeping literally any job I’ve ever had. Which is all very true. She got it. I’m set for a year. I thought maybe it helps when they figure they’ve got a new client. I actually kept going for a while but didn’t get much out of it (big surprise),& stopped.
