Does someone who is born disabled not get to get married? Shouldn't they be informed up front about this policy? Shouldn't they be informed yearly that if their marital status has changed they will lose their benefits? Should it take 17 years to find out? It's not like they were hiding it. Good grief, they probably send out privacy policies, etc. at least that often.
If you divide the bill he just got stuck with by 17 years, then it's only a little over $6,000 a year. That was all he was getting. It's difficult enough for a person to live on that already and now this!
I hope they can fight it, but it will take time. So many are just one rent payment away from being homeless already and I don't want my friend and his lovely wife to have to experience that.
