(I am asking this for a friend) The issue is that my friend is intellectually disabled and has had issues since July of last year with not receiving his payments or an answer from Social Security as to why this is happening. The only response made...
I agree with my colleagues on this one. You and your friend should both go to the local office to find out that happened to his benefits. You should check for any notices your friend may have missed.See question
I would like to know if my spouses SSI disability benefits would be affected if we were to co-sponsor a family friend to the US from the UK I understand about the liability factor but am concerned about the SSI disability payment distribution bein...
SSI is essentially welfare disability and it employs an income test. Any income the family receives can potentially reduce the SSI your spouse receives. Of course, this would be different if she was receiving Social Security Disability which does not have an income test.See question

You would not lose your Social Security Disability unless you were incarcerated more than 30 days for this matter.See question
My sister is disabled due to a brain aneurysm and she has memory loss and unable to do some day to day things. She lived in a house she owned that had black mold in it and roof was caving on so the city condemned it. She also owes thousand of doll...
If the house has no value, then it would not disqualify her for SSI. If it has value, then it should be sold for its value. Once the proceeds are spent for reasonable expense then your sister can re-apply for SSI. Perhaps she can get a Legal Aid Lawyer to handle this. If not contact a real estate lawyer.See question
Receive an substantial settlement while I was receiving SIS. Got a letter that SSI over paid me. I sent the requested about. Now they say I owe $80,000. I no longer have SIS benefits. They cut me off although I still suffer from my disability in t...
SSI is welfare disability and only allows you to have $2,000 in cash. It appears you had a settlement that exceeded the $2,000 resource limit. You did not indicate how long you were on SSI. You would need to have been on SSI a long time to accumulate an $80,000 over payment. You need to provide this information.See question
i married someone with undissolved domestic partnership. i did not know of the existence of such partneship at the time of our wedding.
If you had a legal marriage and the other relationship was not a legal marriage, you should not have a problem.See question
Can you change your mind on the benefits you receive if you do so in the first 12 months of receiving benefits? My understanding is if I take my own retirement benefit at age 66, the amount will not increase (except for cost of living increases)....
I have found that Mr. Pont is correct. If you go to your local Social Security office, they will assist you in getting the highest benefit.See question
has approx. 8 K, with monthly expenses at $2500. I am probably going to try for permanent SSI, so many medical issues. I need some funds right now, RIGHT now!
In order to get unemployment you have to say you are "able and available" for work. In order to get SSI or SSDI you have to say you are "too disabled" to work. Many judges will not award SSDI benefits to someone who is on unemployment. As others have said, since SSI is welfare disability you cannot have income such as unemployment and expect to get welfare disability such as SSI.See question
Can Social security cut me off because of a settlement I just recieved?
SSI or welfare disability is means tested. This means you cannot have resources greater than $2,000 and you cannot have income.
On the other hand, Social Security Disability is not a welfare program so generally a settlement unless it is for workers compensation will not affect Social Security Disability benefits.See question
A worker touched another worker so she says but nobody saw it and she didn't tell the manager but she stated out loud if you want to touch me asked then made a statement to another worker that he could get it if he wanted because he was nice and s...
A sexual assault can be a workers comp case or it can be a personal injury depending upon your state's law. Whether or not one can sucessfully bring a charge depends upon the victim's credibility as opposed to the witnesses who deny anything happened. It would of course help the victim if she had some corroborating evidence.See question
