Subject: [Nfbmo] Another Blind Pension Victory with Back Pay

At a recent craft fair members of the Columbia Chapter came across a lady 
whose brother was taken off the Blind Pension.  I contacted Terrell Lamb and 
told him some steps he might take with the Columbia office including 
visiting the office. He and his significant other visited the office Tuesday 
morning and were told there was nothing they could do except ask for a 
hearing and that Eugene Coulter didn’t know anything about Blind Pension.
After being told about this reaction I quickly dashed off an Email to FSD 
state office about the case and the trouble Mr. Lamb was having as well as 
calling and Emailing  the Boone County Director. Mr. Lamb was informed 
Thursday morning that things were being corrected and he he would receive 
back pay  back to April which should be $6,399.00. They also apologized  for 
the confusion and inconvenience. The only other thing was he would have to 
see an eye doctor in January.
I am glad I was able to get speedy action for him so he will have a very 
Happy New Year!
PS- Anyone who has not had a recent eye exam  can expect to have FSD send an 
appointment letter as they are enforcing the five year (or less) requirement 
for re-examinations, there are no exceptions even if you have artificial
