Question about PA
February 7, 2013 at 5:11 PM

I am not trying be be disrespectful. I mean no offense. 

I was curious if PA is something you can collect forever... Or is like unemployment? Is there a time limit or requirement? 

I just dont know anything aout it, and i read a lot of posts about people bashing people which i dont really understand... So i figured this was a safe group to ask. 

Thanks..and again, no dosrespect meant at all...

    I am not sure. 

    I think it varies County to County.

    food stamps you can. Medicaid you can. as long as you qualify. Tanf you have to either be working or going through their job training and then fill out x amount of applications and if you don't find a job they give you one. Usually working at  food banks,senior citizen homes, salvation army, cleaning setting tables. sorting donated goods. even after they give you  job you're still required to fill out applications and go to their job training. I have known people who said f it that's too much work, and went and got a real job.

    Out here (unless its changed) once your children turn 5 and they are in school you have to work a minimum of 20 hours a week to collect.

    No. (some people CAN "scam the system") but for "FS" can be a bit longer (not a life time!) but "cash assistance" I think either 3 to 4years.

    No it's a system to "help people" when either no job, homeless, or ("baby machine" no offense) or teens needing help. (I am not trying to offend.)
