Just read in the Taunton Gazette today that the Chief of Taunton has put a freeze on LTC/FID applications. He sent a memo to his clerks not to accept any new applications. Apparently due to budget cuts TPD had to layoff a few office clerks so now they have a very long back log of applications that haven't been processed. So until they can catch up no new applications will be taken in. Lucky for me my fathers on the job in Taunton so I should be all set when my LTC expires next year. Although maybe they'll be caught up by then.
