is unemployment eligable income for determining rent?
my apartment complex goes by 30% of my income. i was working for 3 yrs then i left in novemeber due to my mom getting breast cancer. now i collect benefits, so my question is if my apartment complex runs my social while doing the annual renewal will it show that i am receiving any unemployment? it might sound like a pretty cut and dry question or a stupid one but i figure i'd ask anyway because what i am getting is very little so if i don't have to let them know i dont really want to. im a single mom of 2 small children so that plays a huge roll in why i dont want them to know about my benefits.
That I do not know the answer to. I think you'll have to ask the agency that controls the rent what is considered income as far as determining rent.
Not a stupid question at all.
But here's the thing, that makes me wonder why don't just ask who it is you have to ask to get the answer.
If they tell you no .. you can relax .. if they tell you yes, you can buck up and deal with the situation as it needs to be dealt with and avoid the possibility of any "fraud issue".
Fraud can be associated with any type of program .. and I for one don't think the worry that hangs over ones head when they know they are doing something that could be found out and is wrong is worth it.
There is something to be said for getting what you give, regardless of any desperation that drives us into making the wrong decision.
