I went through this a few years back with my husband. He was off work for a year and a half. It took about 4-5 months for his workmans comp checks to start coming in. In the mean time we were behind in everything. I work but only clear about $700 a month. At the time he was a smoker so there went some of the money. After I paid car payment and insurance, put gas in the car and bought his smokes there went the money. I took thousands of dollars worth of jewelry and sold and got a fraction of what they were worth. I went to the local food bank twice a month to help us out until we got food stamps. We would have lost our home if it wasn't for this wonderful program called Save The Dream. They paid our back morgage, paid 6 months ahead and paid off our second morgage. That alone was about $30,000. All we have to do is stay in our home for at least 5 years after we started making our own payments and we owe them nothing. It has been almost 3 years since all this happened. My husband sued the company, they settled with him but he did loose his job because of it. Being on workmans comp is a big pain and it's never about the person who got hurt. Hang in there and use any and all resources that are available to help you. And please send me your paypal addy.
