I see you've read neither the linked article nor the rest of the thread. Why not go ahead and do that, and then see if you have anything relevant to contribute?

The article also describes a woman who is obviously unfit for the office she held.
The article is misleading and left out some information. She was living in her car outside of the house that she had been living in, which is the house she used for her address. She deffinitely was living within the county, just not inside a house. But she was living at that address, just not in the house.

Then why was she routinely using her benefits card to shop at stores in a different county, when there were locations closer to that address she could have shopped at?

That was also in the article.

That’s also misleading, because where she was living was right on the county line (Warren, Michigan).

Edit: I just looked it up on a map. It’s juat a little over a half mile away from the county line.

Why 'homeless' just because she lives somewhere else?
And why does nobody know where she actually lives? How is that even possible in the modern world?

Last I checked, living in a car is basically being homeless. So if she, for example, lived on 1313 Mockingbird Lane, now that she's living in her car, all she needs to put for a return address on mail is "parked out in front of 1313 Mockingbird Lane", and the USPS will deliver her bills, letters, etc. right to her car parked out front of that street address? Is that how it works?

How about if I'm living in my car parked out in front of some house that burns down. Am I entitled to some of the insurance money that's paid out in the claim from the fire?

They do know where she lives, or lived. They just don’t think the house qualifies as a valid address because it didn’t have functioning utilities and she was a hoarder (house full of junk).

Good questions. As for mail, the mail could be delivered to the house and she could use the house mailbox.

As for insurance, if you paid the insurance, you can collect no matter where you are living. For example, if you are renting out the home, you as the landlord would pay the insurance even though you don’t live there. That could be the case in this instance. She may have been renting, maybe even squatting. I don’t know.
