WELFARE CHECKS TO GO OUT 9 DAYS LATE

Dec. 10, 2001 – Public assistance checks which were scheduled to have been sent out last Wednesday will be mailed by Friday, Human Services Commissioner Sedonie Halbert announced Monday.
She said the checks are issued by the Finance Department and were delayed due to processing problems. "Something went wrong, but I don't know what happened," she said. Halbert said her first priority is to see that the checks go out, and after that she plans to
investigate the cause of the delay. She said it had been a long time since assistance checks last went out late.
