Helping North Texans: Sarah from Dallas

May 31, 2021
Casework Success Stories

Sarah is a single mom from Dallas. After the passing of her 13 year old son’s father in October 2020, Sarah’s son was entitled to survivor benefits. After she contacted the Social Security Administration (SSA), Sarah was told that she should start receiving the payments beginning in January 2021; but did not receive any payments on that date or for months afterwards. She once again attempted to contact SSA in April, and when that did not work, she reached out to Rep. Allred.

Upon hearing about Sarah’s problem, Rep. Allred reached out to SSA to ensure that she and her son would receive the payments they deserved. Shortly after, the issue was resolved and her son’s survivor benefits, totalling $35,000, were sent out in June 2021.
