it depends on your income if you are a working class person 
the max that you can get for yourself is $200 

for 2 is $367 
     3 is $526 
     4 is $668
     5 is $793
     6 is $952
     7 is $1052
     8 is 1202 and add $150 for each person after

that's the maximum amount, rarely do people max out because they count your income also. so if you're making minimum wage you wont get the full amount alot of times unless you have a ton of other expenses

Amusing story, 
when I worked as a student worker for the DCFS we had alot of wealthy white women come in and say that their husband left them but he took care of the kids needs (clothes etc) and paid all the bills but he didnt buy food. those women would get their benefits and go bout their way LOL

he didn't have to do it at all

most everyone can last on a diet for a week and then "gorge/catch up" the next week like wtf was that

but to last a month is something different

I wouldn't want people to do a week and then feel like it's no big deal because I did it for a week and lived

do people get a weekly amount? or a monthly amount?

if it's weekly then maybe it's more tolerable than I thought
