Revised 2018


These are all valuable services for those with low or no income and need help.


Salt Lake City is a VERY generous, kind, caring city, along with all of Utah!!!

If you are in a position to help others please get involved in your own community. It's super easy to tap on this link and help in a way that works for you.

https://www.justserve.org/


If you know of individuals or families who need assistance please encourage them to ask for help from any of the resources below.


I am very passionate about this subject because our family (of 6) has lived through 5 layoffs over a 41 year time period. Sometimes we had enough in savings to get through and sometimes we didn't and had to humble ourselves and ask for help. I am so happy we did ask for help because I developed a lot more empathy and compassion for the poor and needy which makes me want to help even more as I am able.


Share my blog with others since many people are not aware of these resources. ❤❤❤❤❤


One final way you can help me:

Call these numbers, visit these addresses, take a photo of the facility, send me the photos, make sure my information is correct and up to date. Salt Lake has opened new facilities since 2018. Send me any new info you find. Thank you!!!

1. SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY INSURANCE AND SUPPLEMENTAL SECURITY INCOME:

The Social Security disability insurance program pays benefits to you and certain family members if you worked long enough and paid Social Security taxes. (Your adult child also may qualify for benefits on your earnings record if he or she has a disability that started before age 22.)

The Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program pays benefits to disabled adults and children who have limited income and resources.

For most people, the medical requirements are the same under both programs and disability is determined by the same process.

Qualifications:

To qualify for Social Security disability benefits, you must first have worked in jobs covered by Social Security. Then you must have a medical condition that meets Social Security's definition of disability. In addition to meeting our definition of disability, you must have worked long enough — and recently enough — under Social Security to qualify for disability benefits. The amount needed for a work credit changes from year to year. List of qualifying conditions at:

Food & Utility Assistance

1. SNAP (Food Stamps)

SNAP offers nutrition assistance to buy healthy food.

Most households must spend some of their own cash along with their SNAP benefits to buy the food they need.

If there is a pregnant woman or a child five years old or younger in your home, the Women, Infant, Children Supplemental Nutrition Program (WIC) may also be able to help with food and teaching about nutrition. Call your local Health Department, or go to this link WIC to find out more.

The amount of SNAP a household receives per month is called an allotment. The allotment is based on the number of people in the household and the amount of money the household earns each month.

Qualifications

There are two income limits: Gross and Net. Most households must meet both income limits. If everyone in your household receives Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), you do not need to meet any income limit.

You must have or apply for a Social Security number if you want SNAP benefits.

If you are able to work, you must be working, look for work, take a job, or go to training.

Contact and Applications

You apply for benefits by completing a State application form. There are several ways to get an application form:

● Pick it up at a local SNAP office, or

● Call the local SNAP office. Ask the local SNAP worker to mail it to you, or

● Ask the SNAP worker if there are other places where you can pick up the form, or

Print the form from your State’s Web site at

Utah received over $23 million in Federal funds in the fiscal year 2014 for the HEAT program. HEAT is not a welfare program. A family does not need to be receiving welfare in order to qualify for this program. It is a Federal Funded Energy Assistance Program that is operating through this office.
