On July 2nd 2013, I applied for SNAP benefits in Houston Texas. I was in receipt of a denial notice on July 12th. I receive SSA disability benefits each month of $2,000 and $1,1001 child benefits for my twelve year old son. I also receive a federal pension from my old job through Office of Personnel Management (OPM) of $900 per month. My husband hasn't worked since 2009 because he takes care of me. I have a mental illness, chronic bronchitis and a reconstructed right knee. I have been disabled since 2008. Our monthly expenses exceed our income. Mortgage $930.05 I have been hospitalized twice this year and I now pay for nine different medications. I have Medicare and we have Aetna (family coverage). We submitted Form H1836-A and B but my psychiatrist did not fill it out correctly.
