food stamps/assistance.

I applied for food stamps in my county and I have to go for a face to face interview tomorrow. What are they going to ask me? Do they give me a decision that day or is it just to get more information?

The letter asked for the following things from each household member applying for assistance.

1. Identification, Birth Certificate and Social Security Card.
2. Shot records for each child under the age of six.
3. Proof of income from any source.
4. Utility bills, rent receipts, mortgage book, property taxes or insurance receipts.
5. Verification of life insurance policies, burial agreements, bank accounts, stocks, bonds, motor vehicle titles or registration.
6. Letter of verification of school attendance or training courses.
7. Voter registration form.

I'm the only name on the application and listed my husband as a household member. Do I need to bring his SS Card too? He won't be home in the morning so I can't take his drivers' license. Neither of us have our birth certificates.

I'm bringing the last 2 pay stubs that he got from a few days here and there of substitute teaching.

I have our rental agreement from last year, but I don't have the new contract. I do have the cancelled checks of the rent payment in this year's amount.

I don't have any life insurance, mortgage, property taxes, insurance receipts, burial agreements, stocks or bonds. I have my bank statement that goes back about a month. I don't have the title to my car because a. it's in my mom's name and b. my stepdad stole it when he was taking stuff out of the house (going through a divorce), but I do have the registration to my car.

I only have a copy of my school schedule with my name/address/identification numbers on it. To get a letter of verification, my school takes at least 2 weeks to mail them out and I only had about a week to gather all of this stuff. Will that be enough for them to see that I'm enrolled in school?

I'm just confused because I don't have all of the stuff that they want to see. Is it going to be a problem that I only have a few of the things that they want? Or is what I have enough? This feels like a very difficult process and I have no idea what I'm doing. I tried to call but I sat on hold for about a half hour each time before I got frustrated and hung up. Will they let me know if there's anything else that we're eligible to receive? I'm in Ohio if that helps.
