I have become unemployed. My husband works part time. We have 2 school aged children, and have some savings. Am I entitled to a medical card for myself and my family?
Your eligibility for a medical card is based on your household income and family size. There are certain income disregards however. If your husband is working over 19 hours per week and in receipt of Family Income Supplement this payment is not taken into account, neither is Child Benefit.
