I work as a consultant, which means I have several part-time gigs. Yesterday, I received a lovely letter from a large corporation I work for on a very, very part-time basis. To sum up, they were concerned about my small income and wanted to make sure I was aware that my family and I would qualify for the Earned Income Credit, but not to worry--it won't interfere with any other Welfare benefits we receive. Whew--thank goodness. I was worried.
Rest easy, fortunately (or unfortunately), we don't need the EIC or Welfare just yet.
