Dear Mr/ President, I am a 60 year old female who has worked my whole life. The past 5 years have been like a nightmare for me. I lost my Mom and all three of my brothers. I have no one now to help me through the rough times.

I have put in at least 30 applications for work and to no avail have been hired..I have been told I do qualify for the position, yet never get the job. I can only work part-time as I collect SSI. But it is barely enough to get me by..

I recently found out that the reason is my credit score, Ha Ha my score was excellent up until I have funerals to pay for, move family members items out etc. I lost my job at the VA hospital in my town because I broke my foot and was considered no longer able to do my duties as described in my job requirements. The Government owes me back pay as I worked weekends and holidays the three and a half years I was employed, yet did not receive preminun pay for all those days. Three years ago I filled out a form for this back pay. yet nothing has been done...

My credit score has dropped do to the fact I do not have enough income to pay house hold bills, I barely have enough for food. I want to WORK..How can I pay for these past due debts if I can't get a job. I do not understand this credit score deal. I guess on my own they are afraid that the creditors will try to attach my wages, so, my Mr. President of the United States of America , what am I to do? Suffer until I die..

I need my back pay owed tome, or a way to get a job..I know hundreds of people who don't want to work, they draw food stamps, I can't. They get weekly government checks. I don't. I will say there are many many folks who have it worse off than I do. But, I have worked my whole like and want to WORK now so I can pay my bills.

Tell Sir what am I to do.

Any advice you can possibly give me will encourage me to keep trying, although I am not going to give up. I am just not that kind of lady.

Thank you for you very valued time.

God Bless you and the family;

Sharon Mount
