She lived in Florida and she just wants to take care of her children and get some computer training, wants to learn to code and to have a nice life to offer her children, you can text me any time, I don't prefer to talk Bc her kids will be awake soon and sometimes they are a bit loud and I cannot hear. But I really want to know if she can get into real trouble is all. Please ?

No I am asking if she doesn't mention she has the credit card, can they find out anyway?
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
But thank you for the resources you mentioned, I guess she already knows about wic. And cash asst etc but thank you so much
Expert:  bkb1956 replied 8 months ago.

Yes. If they use her social security number to check her credit report.

If they specifically ask if she has a credit card, she should said yes.

The first link is the actual way to find out if she's eligible.
