I have NOT been paid since February 2013 due to a workplace injury, filed Worker's Comp in March. My claim was not adjudicated until September 30, 2013, in which it was accepted my dept. of Labor. Now since the DOL in Philly has closed therefore I cannot be paid for the past 8 months and the Department of Veterans Affairs has Furloughed me a week after my claim was decided by DOL. My VA home loan stand in default and if I do not receive my disability benefit in November. I have called by Congressman for HELP, but this has feel on death ears. I feel my elected officials has failed US, not only as Veterans but American. The mission for VA is "To care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan” where is this being done. I feel as through they have broken their contract with us the Veterans.
