Desperately seeking financial assistance for dental work and vision exam and glasses
started this conversation
I am a married woman with limited resources and am in desperate need of some financial assistance so I can have some dental work done and have my eyes checked and glasses replaced. My husband is retired from the military and our dental insurance won't cover the complete cost of this dental work and we have no vision coverage of any kind. He served in the Army for 20 years. I am disabled and my sole source of income is Social Security. My husband gets military retirement, VA benefits and Social Security for retirement. We aren't eligible for any type of assistance because we make a bit too much to qualify, but we still are not in a position to come up with the kind of money that we need for things like this. He also needs to have his partial replaced, and we haven't even looked into that because of the cost. I am desperate because I know that I will have bigger problems ahead of me unless and until I can get this tooth fixed.
