I recently found a card tucked in my home's window that appears to be from a Michigan Welfare investigator. It had my name and date hand-written on it with my name, a date, and the message 'please call'.
I recently discovered I have two bench warrants in Washington State. I may have unknowingly answered a question incorrectly when recently filling out renewal paperwork.
I do have a misdemeanor in Washington State. The Washington Courts assured me that they wouldn't cross state lines for the size of the warrants. I do want to deal with them but I live in MI and haven't been able to work in over a year.
At the beginning of my first year of coverage, I suffered a spinal cord injury from falling down a flight of stairs. I required a lot of care. I was in the hospital for nearly a month. Lots of specialists, physical therapy, meds, etc... One thing - I don't ever recall a question about warrants on the initial application.
I'm wondering if there's a true reason to be worried? How do I find out if any charges have been filed? I heard I should not talk to this person. Is this true, or an option?
Feel free to ask.
