A couple weeks ago, a man and wife stopped into our office in dire need of help. They have five kids and zero income. The gentleman explained that his IU benefits from the VA had been cut off. IU is short for Individual Unemployability, this I did not know.
He had changed addresses and somehow, his benefits were cut off. We immediately cut him a check for his utilities, which were about to be cut off, and talked with him and his wife about their situation.
In finding out more he stated that they were sent to us by the Morgan County Social Services, and that he had no idea that we were here. It is uplifting when you know that a county agency and Veterans’ Outreach can work together to the betterment of a veteran and his family. Before he left we gave him the hotline number to Trump’s veterans call center as it was instituted for cases such as these. The number is 1-855-948-2311, I have heard that it works, give it a try.
