ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An elderly Albany woman who went two months without receiving her Social Security checks finally got one Thursday.

75-year-old Margie Lofton said that the story WALB shared about her Social Security issues prompted the Social Security Administration officials in Maryland to fix her problem.

People in town even brought her food and offered to pay her utility bill after her power was cut off.

"I'm on this TV to thank them peoples. Y'all know I appreciate everything y'all did for me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Y'all don't know how much I appreciate what y'all did for me," said Lofton.

Lofton said the Social Security Office told her she should get her second check by Monday, though they never fully explained what went wrong.
