no nothing will be affected, as long as he is US citizen he is entitled to apply for it for himself, but he is not allowed to include you in order to get more money, just make sure he does it for him only and dont include u

You are correct you can apply for all USC members of the household. So for the stamps the household size is 2. However any income you make is included in household income. IF you were to apply it might cause them to go after your sponors for repayment.


This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.

They will ask for HOUSEHOLD income so yes what you earn will be included, but for the number of people count you will NOT be included.

So if your husband earns $10,000 and you earn $10,000 then your household income is $20,000. But when they ask for number of people in the house, he would only put himself and your daughter. So it looks like "he" earns $20,000. Make sense?
