The issue in GetHuman-lainchas's own words
I am currently getting an income of $*** from SSI and $** in SNAP benefits. My issue is with the amount of SNAP benefits that I receive. I know SNAP goes by main bills, which I give $*** to my dad, each month, BUT I have a dog who is in training to be my support animal and I spend OVER $*** each month on him. Not to mention, my $**.** veterinarian wellness insurance for him so vet bills won’t be expensive. I’ve had my dog long before applying for SNAP. Furthermore, I don’t understand how my “on hand” SAVINGS is more relevant than my spendings. I won’t be using any of the SAVINGS because it is all for “top” SURGERY to help improve my mental state because I have been diagnosed with gender dysphoria and I am transitioning from female to male. Which, my medical insurance does NOT cover and will cost $*,***. I put $*** into my saving each month and have been doing this BEFORE receiving my SNAP benefits. I do not plan on spending any of my “on hand” money until I reach my goal. I am enable to work in order to receive anymore money due to my mental health. I have also been diagnosed with panic disorder, social anxiety, generalized anxiety, and chronic depression. I am fairly certain the top surgery can improve * of my * diagnosed conditions. I feel like because of the expenses of the above, my benefit amount should be reconsidered. I am aware that SNAP isn’t supposed to “fill the fridge” or sustain a month’s worth of food but $** is not enough because I can NOT LIVE off of $** from my ONCE a month SSI check, after all my spendings. I been eating only once a day to make my food stretch because there is NOT enough benefits to even HELP me as it is now. Even while eating once a day, my food runs out around the *nd to *rd week of each month. I feel like due to my spendings all being towards self care, including taking care of my support dog in training, my benefits should be around $**-$** at the least. I really hope to receive my preferred amount, despite it not being much more of a difference (though you might disagree). I think considering my living expenses to determine my benefit amount makes sense and is fair. I have thought hard on this subject and hope you can see it from my perspective despite my savings and taking care of my dog are possibly considered personal or “unnecessary” expenses. But that’s why I’m not mentioning my Netflix because Netflix really is unnecessary, UNLIKE putting forth steps (which costs money) to improving myself in hope that one day I won’t need SNAP or SSI. Not to mention, MY medical insurance now requires up to a $* fee for some medicines and*or doctor appointments. I live with my dad but he is unable to provide any help towards food, clothing, or anything because he doesn’t get much more of a check than me but has much more expensive bills. I hope you can see and take everything I mentioned as serious as I do.
