You should! State AID is your money, if you are tax payer. The only way you can get your own money back from state is to claim some benefits, obviously legally.
Not paying taxes is not an option, but you can do the next best thing and get the benefits of them totally legit.
Does anyone believe the California state government would do ANYTHING about this? The folks in Sacramento WANT people like this living in their state, receiving money taken from hard-working citizens.
