After talking with IDHS it was decided that it would be better to restart the process all over. We told the gentleman we would be glad to help him reapply. So he brought us his wife’s green card (she is not eligible for food stamps as she has not been a resident of the United States for five years), paystubs, social security cards etc. and we completed the application and faxed it and all the supporting documents to IDHS.
We are certain we sent four weeks’ worth of paystubs to IDHS, as we keep copies of everything, but IDHS has asked for them again. He will be bringing us two more pay stubs to copy and we will take the agency’s copy of those already sent and fax them again. As he supports a family of five on approximately $1300 a month we are hopeful his food stamp application will be granted in a timely fashion.
