You will need to bring with you (1) Social Security cards for everyone living in the household, (2) proof of your household’s income for the preceding month, you must present award letters, NO copies of checks. etc; documentation from the local DCBS office will not be accepted, with the exception of zero income households receiving food stamps and KTAP. All recipients receiving Social Security and SSI checks that will need income verification will need to contact their local Social Security office for this in advance since Social Security will not be faxing proof. (3) Your most recent heating bills or verification from your landlord that the heating expenses are included in your rent.
