PORTLAND, Oreg. (KOIN) — Hundreds of people who relied on a local non-profit to receive their federal benefits are now getting help after a ruling on Wednesday.

A judge ordered the Social Security Administration to find new representatives who used Safety Net of Oregon to get their federal benefits.

The decision was in response to a class action lawsuit some of Safety Net’s former clients filed on Monday.
