Editorial Reviews

Elaine Alquist
I am the daughter of an immigrant. As a former State Assemblywoman, and now candidate for California State Senate (SD 13), I work to ensure that all people have the opportunity to live full lives, to be treated with respect, and receive the services they need. Harikrishna has distilled years of wisdom into this invaluable aid for older immigrants in need of services.
Kshitish Divatia
Mr. Harikrishna Majmundar deserves full credit for this very difficult and meticulous attempt to provide a rational and honest approach in tackling welfare problems for elderly immigrants in the USA. It is difficult to disagree with his wisdom and impossible to question it. This book will also serve as a very useful guide for elderly people who intend to migrate to the USA, as it clears a lot of misinformation prevailing in other countries."
Suresh Shah
I have known Harikrishna for over 10 years. He possesses a sound legal background and has helped numerous welfare claimants to obtain welfare benefits. He has eased their lives without taking any compensation. On few occasions, he has sought my guidance to solve knotty legal issues of his clients. I feel that his knowledge, expertise and experience with the welfare authorities, reflected in his book, will provide necessary information, examples and guidance to all concerned.

Meet the Author

Harikrishna Majmundar, himself an 91-year-old immigrant, has advised hundreds of welfare applicants throughout California and has represented many in successful appeals. His key to success is a thorough understanding of the rules, which he studies continuously to stay up-to-date, and a friendly, win-win approach to all situations.
He is the recipient of many awards for his voluntary social work, among them the Toni Sykes Memorial Award for dedica- tion and outstanding service to the community, given by the
Human Relations Commision of Santa Clara County. He also wrote a weekly column for seniors, Suzerain Seniors, in the India Post newspaper.
