Cash grants are designed to assist low/no income people to survive. Ideally this is supplemental income and not the sole source of survival. But, either way, an entitlement grant is NOT a paycheck and I would appreciate not having to hear "I get paid on the 3rd".
Getting paid implies that you entered into a contract where you did work in exchange for pay.
Not everyone can work, but I hope you explore employment anyway. My friend can’t walk and only has partial use of just one arm. Currently Stacy earns more than I do. It turns out that her brain and mouth is all she needs to make a living. She was receiving SSI since early childhood and decided she simply didn’t want to live on that payment, although it is a nice safety net.
Push limits and don’t limit yourself to public assistance. The money isn’t enough to live on. Get your hustle on and if you can earn a paycheck, try to do so.
Either way; entitlement funds and grants are not EARNED INCOME.
