Changing Lives: Scott

 

After bravely serving our country in faraway places, some veterans unfortunately find themselves fighting new battles on the home front - some of them legal. Scott, a disabled Vietnam veteran, contacted Colorado Legal Services (CLS), when he was threatened with the loss of his Supplemental Security Income benefits because of an outstanding medical debt. The debt was incurred when he received non-service related care from the VA after suffering two strokes and a heart attack. With CLS' help, Scott was assured that his SSI benefits would not be affected, and a repayment plan was negotiated that fit his limited budget. CLS also assisted Scott in applying for long-term care assistance to get the additional care he needs.
