Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help with your question and concern
Did they advise and share with you why they want these?
Thank you. Based upon the letter, it appears they are questioning certain previously things stated and disclosed and need to verify those representations, which you made. If nothing was every asked or required to be disclosed about your finances, in the past, I would certainly question the relevance and need of that information, unless they are trying to determine if you submitted this claim, since you were in need of money. However, there is nothing wrong with past information about previous claims, so you may want to start by providing that information, if it was already presented, since you know it was accurate and truthful and will support the claim and what happened.
By law? No. However, if it is not provided and they question the claim and believe there is some motive or intent to defraud, they can deny the claim. If they do that, then you would have to appeal and go after them and even sue, so if you have it and are comfortable providing it, should, so that they are satisfied. The previous claims should not be an issue, if you were already paid on them and there was evidence to support them. However, the financials you could decide to withhold and object to, until they advise you of the relevancy.
