Employment – Veterans -Employee Redress and Appeals for Federal Government Employment Actions

Veterans who are federal government employees have certain rights of appeal and redress when they are aggrieved by governmental actions.

Estate Recovery

When a nursing home resident who has received Medicaid benefits dies, the state’s Medicaid agency may attempt to recover unpaid Medicaid nursing home expenses from the resident’s estate. While there are federal laws and regulations governing recovery from a Medicaid recipient’s estate, each state is allowed to establish its own recovery guidelines.

Guardianship and Voting Rights

It is sometimes necessary to place a person under guardianship to protect him or her from his or her own personal and financial decisions. Guardianship is an extreme remedy, however. It is used only when a person cannot, for example, understand the implications of his or her decisions or cannot recognize potentially harmful situations.

Medicare Basics

The Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA) administers Medicare, the federal government’s health care insurance program for the disabled and the elderly. The HCFA contracts with private insurance companies to review and process the claims.

Social Security – The Basics

The Old Age Survivors and Disability Insurance Program, often known as Social Security, provides America’s aging population with a full spectrum of benefits, including retirement benefits, survivors’ benefits, Social Security Disability benefits (SSDI), and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). President Franklin Delano Roosevelt originated the program as a way to protect Americans from the pitfalls of poverty after the Great Depression.
