    The amount of wage continuance will be taken into account as income in calculating whether or not you qualify for a government assistance.

    It is considered “Unearned” income, and if your receiving it from an insurance company and not in cash, you will have to report it, if you don’t the assistance program you applied for will be able to find it and you will get into trouble. Just depositing it in your account will set a red flag to investigate.

    Depending on the amount received and how many members in your house hold will depend on whether you will still qualify or not.

    Other things you can do…

    contact your local United Way Office, for discounts on utilities, gas cards, counseling, clothes, free food, legal advice ect…

    Contact local Housing Authority and be placed on their waiting list for free or low cost housing.

    Apply for food-stamps AFDC/Welfare and Med-ical insurance., and IHSS (in Home Social Services) in the welfare office you need any in home care, needs or transportation.
