Super laggy atm, I forced my way through, but I had to repeat almost each page like 4x. Unless you think they'll run out of money do it in off hours.

If you are not in immediate need of the money, let those who really depend on this for food or rent apply first. The rest of us can apply tomorrow. One day won’t hurt you. The site is already crashing.

Trying to fill this out is like fighting for a PS5 order, but I do echo the sentiment to let those who are in need apply first.

Well someone posted on RFD and now there is 10x traffic it's designed to handle.

Then again, how often does government do IT right anyway.

So when is a child no longer a child anymore?
For example, is a 20 year old unmarried adult still considered as a child to a parent?

My guess is if you still claim them on your taxes as a dependent, they're still a child? I don't really know

Did anyone get a confirmation email that your application has gone through?

I got a confirmation number on the final page but no email
