Another Military Pro Bono Project Success Story
With the goal of establishing long-term financial savings, a Marine signed up for a savings allotment, which was deducted from each paycheck and was supposed to be deposited into his savings account. The Marine’s paystubs confirmed that over $200 were deducted from each paycheck for his savings account for several years. However, after the Marine inquired about the balance of his savings account, he found out that his money was actually being deposited into an account of another individual with a similar social security number. The Marine and the bank were at a standstill regarding the refunding of his savings. The Military Pro Bono Project located a volunteer attorney who was able to resolve the issue and successfully retrieve the Marine’s savings money.
