To collect debt, FEMA takes part of Ike victim’s Social Security
Houston Chronicle

Roy Mooney was surprised to learn early last year that the federal government was deducting $180 each month from his $1,200 Social Security check.

“I had no idea they could do that, just haul off and do it,” the 79-year-old said.

He also was surprised to learn that federal assistance intended to help him rebuild a home destroyed by Hurricane Ike instead made it impossible for him to qualify for a new dwelling under a $100 million federal program administered by Galveston County. Advocates for storm victims say Mooney’s plight is an example of how regulations sometimes are blind to the plight of those in need.
