The benefits have finally arrived
My mother after numerous months of waiting has finally gotten her SSI. They were supposed to have started her benefits in November. My point is what the hell would she have done if I wouldn't have covered her bills for the last few months? She would have been homeless and broke. Do they play games like this with other people waiting? My mother has worked her whole life and retired at 65. She was so broke she had to go apply for food stamps last week. My mom is a prideful woman and it devastated her to use food stamps. So now she is straightened out and the relief will alleviate so much stress. I just thank God she had family. I am sure there are numerous folks who have been in this situation with no family. You work your whole life and than get dicked around by the government for almost 4 months. That is shameful...
