Loss of Income

I was assisting an individual with his Medicaid application and SSDI application. While in the process of working on this, he was laid off from his part-time job. This put him in a very desperate situation, with no income coming in (since he does not receive SSI or SSDI). I continued to work with him on completing his applications, but knowing a decision was still several months away, another co-worker assisted him with completing an unemployment claim. I have been following up with him and his unemployment claim has been approved and he should receive that income very shortly. He is also hoping to get his stimulus check this month, and the combination of those two things should help to cover his expenses during this crisis.
