One would think that DOE would honor impartial hearing orders. I mean they will, once you twist DOE’s proverbial arm. There’s a couple of ways to do this. Hire an attorney to chase your money. I’ve heard stories that attorney’s charge as much as 7% to chase your awarded money. Don’t mind me, but THAT IS NUTS. Stop the insanity and learn how to do it for free….
File a NYSED complaint. As always, it’s best to setup DOE to show that you have done everything possible to get paid and they have ignored you (not complied).
I filed my most recent NYSED complaint on March 9, 2021 and received my reimbursement (for a MacBook, iPad, Apple Pencil and hearing aids) via direct deposit on May 11, 2021.
A word about NYSED complaints. All decisions are final. I cannot stress enough that you need to file on clear black/white issues, nothing grey. Keep the complaints brief. Dot your “i”s and cross your “t”s.
Don’t feel confident? Feel free to reach out to me.
