“She lived on the street, but she didn’t ask for money. »

She lived on the streets but did not beg for money. She held a sign and asked people to read it. After 16 years, someone stopped and read the sign. Then everything changed. Here’s what was on the note…

An 80-year-old woman has a moving story to tell, but not without a happy ending.

Wanda Ritter hasn’t slept in her own bed in 16 years. Everyone thought she was crazy, but she continued to claim that “the government owed her $100,000,” and she repeated it every day.

She carried a bag full of documents and bad checks, but no one paid her any attention. Everyone thought she was just another crazy person…

Wanda was a locksmith and mother of four children. On the streets of Washington, she constantly claimed that the Social Security system owed her a lot of money.

“I was crazy to get rid of the bag,” the others thought. “I thought if I did something stupid, people would think I was crazy,” she explained.

But everything changed when Julie Turner, a 56-year-old social worker, heard his story and became interested in his case. As she checked the documents, she shook her head in disbelief.

“She needed financial support, not mental health help,” Turner emphasized, saying she owed the government $100,000.

But how did the woman recognize the problem? Wanda began receiving checks ranging from $300 to $900 per month. She did not cash the checks because she thought there was a problem with them and instead returned them. But Ritter called social services to look into the matter.

“If I had cashed it and said there was a mistake, who would have believed me? ” Ritter told local reporters, believing that once she took control of the case, she could solve it.

With the help of kind social worker Julie Turner, Ritter was given a $500 apartment.

A week after the news went viral, Ritter received his first Social Security check for $1,644.
