Social Security wouldn't pay what was owed to 80-year-old Wanda Witter, and she ended up living on the streets of Washington DC for 16 years. She carried three suitcases of paperwork documenting her claim that the government owed her more than $100,000. Many people thought she was mentally ill and was making it up. But she was right all along, and Social Security wrote her a check for $99,999. They will probably give her more.
The Washington Post reports 80-year-old Wanda Witter moved to the District of Columbia in 1999 to seek work after losing her job as a machinist years earlier.
Witter remained jobless, and in 2006 decided to draw Social Security benefits. However, the monthly checks ranged from $900 to $300. Believing the checks were wrong, Witter didn’t cash them and sought help.
Many thought Witter was crazy, but social worker Julie Turner confirmed Witter has paperwork proving her claims. Turner took Witter to attorney Daniela de la Piedra, who took on her case. The lawyer says Witter should receive a $99,999 Social Security check soon.

Not saying she's "crazy"; saying that, the woman turned down help from family over and over.
