Federal Poverty Guidelines

February 15th, 2012 at 05:16 am

This is the federal poverty guideline. If we just go on my regular income of $19,572, I am definitely under the poverty level for a family of 4.

But, I do supplement my income by babysitting, cleaning houses and working a summer job.

And, yet I feel very blessed with everything I have accomplished.

    You are doing great considering your income level. You should be proud!

    I make just slightly more than that as a single person, although I have no rent or utilities expense (so that probably bumps me up another $5k or so a year.) I'm impressed that a family of 4 can make it on this amount - because I know I sometimes feel like I'm barely treading water, and it's just me!

    It takes creativity, resolve, and diligence to make it when things are tight, and it sounds like your efforts lead to great success in that regard. Congrats! You are to be commended. Many, many people in the country have no insurance that they can make ends meet on far more resources than that.
