Government Opinion

Email to the NYC Comptrollers office about my HRA public assistance recertification date being moved.


Thank you for the response. I understand things must be very busy for all government staff. First and foremost I treat everyone at the NYC Comptroller’s office, the New York City Human Resources Administration/Department of Social Services (HRA/DSS), and my college with the utmost respect at all times regardless of how they treat me. The NYPD and New York law enforcement are always trying to make up lies that I act out of order. Treating people respectfully is more important than anything.

I don’t have a criminal record, I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I don’t party at all. I have a 4.0 GPA at college with a 100% attendance record after 27 credits. I’ve been living in the street homeless the whole time.

I have a few questions about my situation with HRA. I’m going to make this email concise. People I know from New York pay the top law enforcement in New York to sabotage and torture people including me.

1. Why was my cash assistance recertification just moved from November 2020 to December? I suspect my recertification date was moved because if my recertification was kept for November, I believe I could have recertified my public assistance case on September 15 or October 1.

New York law enforcement and the NYPD know that my student loans will be given to me around October 15. They know that if the money from my student loans lands in my bank account at the same exact time as my recertification it might confuse the situation and cause a major inconvenience for me.

If I’m wrong, great, please let me know. My student loan amount is about $5000. Especially during these difficult times where so many people are applying for benefits and no one is meeting in person, I would not want to get lost in the shuffle. It’s going to happen during the coldest months of winter while I’m a full-time college student living in the street with everywhere closed.

I can’t even sleep on the subway platform in the chairs anymore. I used to like to sleep in the chairs on the platform at the Columbus Circle subway station. There is an NYPD transit police station in the subway station so I figure it’s as safe as it can be in that type of situation.

I was told by my school’s welfare office that it’s OK to receive student loans while on public assistance. I used to provide web marketing services. New York law enforcement shut it down. Now I’ve been living in the street for the past 5 years and go to college. When I went to a homeless shelter the NYPD had people harassing me and chasing me around the shelter the whole time.

I need my student loan money and public assistance to survive the winter. As far as I know, everyone else is allowed to get it. Why was my recertification date just switched from November to December, so that it lands on the same day I receive my student loans? I can not spend 1 million hours to put out 1 fire after the next that New York law enforcement creates for me while I’m living outside in the freezing cold and having to maintain my grades. Plus there isn’t going to be anywhere that allows people inside to study this winter.  

2. HRA stopped paying my storage even though I provided all the necessary documentation and I found the most inexpensive storage available. The storage cost is $34 per month. They might say I paid my storage in advance so they won’t pay. I paid my storage in advance with my student loans because the police torture me. I was concerned if New York law enforcement makes up some lie to have my HRA case dropped (again) for no reason I didn’t want my belongings in the street. Has anyone else’s storage payment been canceled because the “client” prepaid their own storage?

3. I can not update my personal information is Access HRA I have been trying to update my mailing address in my Access HRA personal profile for months and I keep receiving an error message. 

4. There is more I’ll share later. 

I don’t take any of this personally.

Thank you and have a great day.
