I rated them 1 star because there was no zero star-option.While my husband & I wait for his SS Disability to kick in (which can take 3-6 months), I was hoping to, you know, have meal or something. I have never made enough money to carry us both, & as it stands presently, we are well below the poverty line. These case"workers" must get cash incentives for denying people assistance (you know, the assistance our tax dollars pay for - that assistance). They gave us EBT privileges for one month, pending further info:1) We needed to show the Blue Book value of my 1999 Saturn & my husband's 2002 Subaru stationwagon. LOL2) We need to give them info on our savings account. The savings acct we don't have. We have one checking acct, & have given them the info on it.All efforts to communicate with this useless pile of garbage masquerading as a caseworker have proved to be null & void. Her name is Ms. Black & I kinda hope she reads this, although I suspect she's illiterate, with the IQ of a walnut

DHS is governed by the Dept. of Agriculture. If you feel that you are wronged by a caseworker I would suggest contacting them with your complaint. (312)353-6664If you reach a voice mailbox, leave your contact info and they will call you back...The number listed above is for the Chicago office and they oversee Michigan DHS Offices..
I can't really judge on the workers since my so called worker has yet to return any of my phone calls but did notify me by mail that I was not approved for the medicare assist program thing due to the fact that I do not have medicare part a even though my medicare card states otherwise and I filed for medicaid and I faxed in everything that I was asked to and the letter stated I didn't. So I'm at a loss as what to do since I cannot get into the office because I cannot drive due
Hideous awful terrible, words just can't describe how bad this office ls! God help you if you need help you're not going to get it from this office. The workers there do absolutely nothing even in cases of extreme emergency. You will never be able to reach them their supervisors or their supervisors supervisor. Because of their Union the workers simply cannot be fired I have heard this from a number of extremely reliable sources. What they do all day is simply beyond me, my guess is they play video games while people starve, freeze to death and endure hideous hardships because they are completely without conscience! In my opinion based on my experience and the workers I've had these people are sociopaths who lack empathy and conscience of any sort whatsoever. I cannot stress this highly enough. If anyone reading this review knows of a way to do something about this please post it on the Internet. You have no idea how much suffering these people are causing. It's a travesty.
Brandy Guinn Payment super at DHS in Pontiac Mi is a racist. Not only that she called me stupid not once but three times, asking me if i could read english because out of the 100 pages ive sent the office i forgot to sign 1 - yes one page. Rather then telling me she closed my case, when i filed an appeal she proceeded to cal me stupid. I told her i was not going to be talked to that way I had my representative call her and she proceeded to tell my representative i was mental and needed help.
ZERO RATING FOR THIS OFFICE. I've been trying to reach someone for three days. I now find my rep is out of the office, a temp is handling her cases, and her mailbox is full. I can't connect with someone and I received a letter that must be handled now! This is unacceptable. I left messages with no return call. Is this the best the State of Michigan DHS can do? The general operator was rude when I finally got her - and she transferrrd me to a supervisor at my request - but again I had to leave a message. I realize times can be difficultt with low employment - but this is ridiculous. DHS made an error - and when I try to call back to resolve this - I can't reach anyone! ZERO RATING.
