My mother, Susan Weisman Keller, (born Zisla Weisman in Dubieczko, Poland), is almost 96 years old. I am her daughter and am writing on her behalf to find out if she is eligible for such a pension. She is ailing after a stroke two years ago but is still very much alive and aware, remembering her childhood in Poland, her friends, family, etc. If there is documentation to be filed, I will see to it that it is done of course. My contact info is below but you have her information because she received two letters (written in Polish) from ZUS. I do not read Polish and would appreciate a reply in English if possible. Thank you, Regina Keller Gil
In the event you do not have her information, my mother’s information is:
