There are a number of government welfare packages for handicapped, veterans, single parents, and workers that are left unclaimed every year in the United States of America. The biggest reason for this is the fact that people do not have the knowledge of these packages. There are numerous social programs designed for the public that do not have the knowledge to take advantage of these programs.
Everyone knows about big social programs like Medicare. But, people do not know about numerous small social programs which are left unclaimed every year. These are not only social programs, but also the money the Federal or State prosecutors receive when they sue corporations and win a huge settlement, they reimburse the settlement to the victims. But, the Victims have to file an application to receive part of the settlement which they are entitled.
A small example is the piston issue in Hyundai cars and everyone that had a particular model of Hyundai car could claim a $10 settlement. It is a very meager amount, but many victims do not claim their settlements and as a result the settlement you receive may be much higher.
