I was hesitant when I applied thinking I wouldn't be helped. But I was so wrong SEF really do care. They go above and beyond. I needed help with groceries due to waiting in my VA Benefits and losing my job after suffering a stroke. Thank you and the terrific team you have. I was exceptionally impressed by the process and speed. It took under two days.
