Michigan's Dept. of Human Services Computer Improvements, Continued...

It's come to my attention that there's yet another special feature of the new computer system now in use by DHS.  It has become possible to have MULTIPLE CASES OPEN ON THE SAME PERSON now, without any need for the recipient to resort to phony identification, fake Social Security numbers, or any of the other bureaucratic hassle we associate with defrauding the government.  THE STATE DOES IT ALL FOR YOU.  I know of one person who has three cases open on herself right now. 

Did she cheat?  NO. 

How many times did she apply for benefits?  ONCE. 

Was her information correct?  YOU BET.

And, yes, you guessed it.  One of her cases shows that she is a benefits recipient in good standing.  One reflects that she has missing paperwork and needs to REAPPLY FROM SCRATCH if she wants to continue getting those benefits.  The third indicates that her paperwork is all up to date and correct, BUT HER BENEFITS HAVE BEEN CANCELLED ANYWAY.
