This is the sad but true story of Wanda Ritter, an 80-year-old woman.
Wanda has been homeless for almost 16 years. According to him, the government owed him $100,000 every day. As she walked the streets with three suitcases full of documents and unpaid checks, everyone thought she was crazy.
Witter was a mother of four and a locksmith. The social security system failed her for years, so she protested on the streets of Washington.
“They thought I was crazy for getting rid of my baggage. She explained that she used to tell herself that if I did something dumb, they would think I was insane.
Turner, a 56-year-old social worker, realized Witter was right one day after listening to her.
Wanda’s paperwork was in order after Turner double-checked it.
“She needed financial assistance, not mental health care. Turner noted that he owed the state $100,000.
How did the wife realize there was a problem?
Witter began receiving checks worth $300 to $900 every month. Social Security was unable to answer Witter’s question about the differences.
The woman returned the checks because she thought there was something wrong with them. “Who would have believed me if I had collected them and claimed that a mistake had been made?”
Witter told local reporters that she is confident that the matter will be resolved if she receives the correct check.
A social worker helped Witter find a $500 apartment.
A week after the story was published in the press, Witter received his first Social Security check, worth $1,644.
