    Terri’s Answer

    I agree with the other attys that you need to see an atty asap to see if there is an out for you. You did not say what the date of your accidnet is. If you are still within two years of that, you are good. You need to see an atty and file a petition for benefits asap.

    This is not a social security question. It is a landlord/tenant issue and you should consult with an atty in that area or a legal aid office.

    I agree with my colleagues. Her benefits were for her benefit. Noone else is entitled to them.

  • If a social security check is in my name does that mean i get the money?

    I am 16 years old, and my mom uses the money for whatever she wants, and i just wanted to make sure that i should be the one using the money, not her. And i might be moving out and she wont give me the check. Shouldnt i get the check not her?

    Terri’s Answer

    You mention that you may be moving out. You didn't state the conditions. Social Security will need that info to help you determine if they will assign a different payee.

  • My husband is on Social security disability and has been offered a monetary settlement. will this effect his monthly payment?

    He has been on a disability for 5 years

    Terri’s Answer

    We need to know if he is receiving ssi or ssdi. As my colleagues indicated, if it is ssi, it could be affected depending on what the settlement is. You may need to contact your attorney to see if something can be done with the settlement, such as a special needs trust.

    Terri’s Answer

    This is not a social security question. However, it sounds like you will be ok when you get the letter from the doctor. If it doesn't get resolved, you need to contact an atty who deals in discrimination, not social security.

  • Life Threatening Heart Condition, the state will not grant Dr backed Disability, first filed 16 years ago

    I have Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy, I was diagnosed over 16 years ago, I was turned down when I applied for disability in 96...I did not work much with this heart condition due to its limitations. I divorced and was forced to find full time work, ...

    Terri’s Answer

    Unfortunately, to receive ssd or ssi benefits, you need to meet not only disability requirements, but eligibility requirements. It sounds like you would meet the disability requirements, but you don't get there unless you first prove you are eligible for ssd by working 20 of the last 40 quarters before your onset date or for ssi by proving low household income. check with your ss office to see what your "date last insured is". your part time work may give you a new one if you make enough.
