This week, we bring you another “Case of the Week” from our Sarasota FL office.
Lights ON for Army Veteran Wife
A wife of an Army veteran, recently widowed, has not received any VA survivor benefit payments to date. The VA is garnishing them for disability “overpayment” to her husband in the past. Not surprisingly, she has fallen behind on her various bills. She has contacted a number of agencies all of whom said they couldn’t help until she was actually evicted from her home(!).
We stepped in on the most urgent, threatened power shutdown, paid the outstanding bill and provided an example to other agencies about assistance before being thrown out on the street.
