There’s a conglomeration of benefits that usually kick in for a dole case. Some states are fairly generous with UI, but there’s stuff like food stamps, Section 8, cash bennies. To be so much of a bum that you couldn’t even be a bum on the dole would be hard.
I have received UI several times but have never gotten food stamps, or anything else, even after surviving Hurricane Katrina in Biloxi. The food stamp office as much as came out and told me that middle-aged white males ain’t gonna get no help.
