But it's a telling sign that grim times may be ahead for millions who depend on said programs to get by. Today we confirmed with multiple food stamp offices across America (including the "Human Resources Admin" in NYC) that the 17th marked the arrival of "February Benefits" for millions.
"This is not an added extra, these, are benefits for February. People who get them early will not get them again until March" reads part of an e-mail received by The Daily News. The e-mail continues to disclose that the agency's tasked with handling those benefit programs, are in fact, scrambling to figure out what is next.
The Daily News has confirmed that no where in America is anyone set to get their benefits in March, as, agencies are unsure if the government shutdown will continue.
