Ramblings - Trying to help a friendPosted Thursday, March 27, 2008, at 1:37 PM
We have a friend in the Bell Buckle area who approached me to help them this morning and I am at a loss for what to do. Can you believe that?
This person has not been able to work for years because of health issues, inability to drive and relies on occasional odd jobs to make extra money. They are able to get food stamps, but otherwise denied any help from Social Security, because they say they can work.
Having known the person for over 16 years, I can attest to the fact that they are probably not going to be offered a job locally and since they can not drive, they can not reliably take a job anywhere else.
They were just denied disability income and have 60 days to appeal the decision, but is not sure where to turn. Is there anyone out there who deals with this type of situation and could offer advice?
Please contact me at Steve@mybedfordcounty.com to discuss in more detail.
