“Managing your money can be confusing and frustrating. Many people use simple methods to help make ends meet more regularly. If you would like to learn and are willing to use what you learn, please contact UW-Extension at 608-339-4237 and ask for financial education from Sue Allen, Family Living Educator. Sue is in Adams County one day a week but can talk with you on the phone Monday through Friday to set up a time to meet with you.”

This includes appeal action relative to the denial of benefits. The Officer may also make referrals to other agencies to insure that all possible assistance is provided. The Officer serves as secretary to the Veterans Service commission, receives and completes necessary investigation regarding applications for emergency assistance from the Commission and obtains their decision.
