Public aid is offered through the state government and includes medical assistance, financial help for food, childcare, utilities and some emergency costs. In order to qualify for these services, a family or individual needs to maintain specific income requirements. If there is a change in your circumstances and you go above the income or have another change in situation, you may need to cancel your public aid services.
Review your paperwork from your acceptance into public aid programs.
Find the name and contact information for your caseworker for public assistance.
Write a letter addressed to your caseworker, and include the date, your Medicaid or food stamp account number, as well as the reason you no longer need public assistance, and sign and date the letter.
Make a copy of the letter after you sign it, and bring it or send it to the office. If you bring it, they should stamp it as “received” and make a copy for you to have.
Request confirmation that your public assistance benefits have been ended.
