Our elder law attorneys help seniors like Jeffery protect their rights and benefits.
A senior named Jeffery lost his job during the pandemic. He applied for unemployment, but his application was not processed for two months. The state then told him he was not eligible.
After spending almost a year trying to appeal the decision with no income, he called VLA. We found that Jeffrey didn’t get proper notice from the state. We petitioned for a new hearing and got one. Jeffrey was found eligible and got more than $10,000 in back benefits.
