Financial Eligibility

We can help you if you are living on a low income. However, we may be able to provide some summary advice even if your income is higher than our limits, so call us.

Financial eligibility is mostly based on family size and family income. Eligibility also depends on the assets you own. For example, a single person with no children, could have an income up to $22,413 per year. A single parent with two children, could have a family income up to $30,356 per year.
