Will I loose my social security Benefits (I get SSDI and SSI) If I use up my 9 month trial work period?
This question is on one of the most misunderstood topics in Social Security Disability law. There are so many facts that are needed to accurately answer this question. My recommendation is to seek an attorney's advice in your area, and make sure that they focus their practice on Social Security Disability.
The problem in this instance with seeking input from SSA is that you may think you understand what they tell you ... but later if you acted on that advice, and you misunderstood it - there is no recourse.
I applaud your effort, heart and desire to work. Before I entertain these questions from my clients, I ask - What does your doctor say about working? What, if any, restrictions does she place on you?See question
My husband was just approved for SSI and SSDI and had his interview Feb 10th in Phoenix AZ and was told he was approved and could expect a paper check for back pay in 5-7 days then the debit card in about 30 days. Its now been 7 days and he called...
The SSA website says the following:
"If you apply for Social Security or Supplemental Security Income benefits, a new law went into effect March 1, 2013, requiring that you receive your payments electronically. If you did not sign up for electronic payments when you applied for benefits, we strongly urge you to do it now. If you still receive checks, the U.S. Department of the Treasury will contact you about complying with the requirement. For more information regarding switching to an electronic payment, visit Treasury’s Go Direct website or call the helpline at 1-800-333-1795." https://www.ssa.gov/deposit/
One of the reasons this law went into effect was to prevent "lost checks" and "stolen checks" and to assure those that receive benefits that they will receive them.
My recommendation is to set up an account for direct deposit.
I agree that going to the local office (in person) to see if a payment can be made to you due to your circumstances.

I received a new CDR 455 and noticed that the codes are different from my previous CDRs. Where can I find exactly what those codes mean?
It appears that you are referring to the Program Operations Manual System (POMS) found at https://secure.ssa.gov/poms.nsf/lnx/0413004000 This link refers to recent POMS changes https://secure.ssa.gov/apps10/reference.nsf/instructiontypecode!openview&restricttocategory=POMT

I am on Social Security retirement. I retired at age 62. My ex husband of 17 years retired at least 5 years after I did. He is four years younger than me. I never got remarried after our divorce. There are no stipulations in our divorce agreement ...
The most expedient and direct answer is by contacting SSA, by phone or in person. I always recommend going to this link https://secure.ssa.gov/ICON/main.jsp to make sure you are speaking to your local office and not a national 800 number. SSA has access to your earnings record and your ex-husband's.See question

ont can i sue bank of america for them taking my money and doing every thing illegal
Can you sue the Bank of America? I will assume that is where your SSI benefits are being deposited. I will assume your name is on the account. But I can't assume from your question who "blocked your account" .... and with this much information, I would say no, you can't sue the bank.
You can advise SSA that you want to change where your benefits go: debit card, different bank account, etc. What is a concern is whether you are an adult, or if you have a payee. If you are a minor, or mother is a payee, this option won't work.
The first best option is to speak to a personal banker at this bank. Find out what is the reason for the account being blocked.
If you have done these things, you likely will want to contact an attorney or Legal Services. Your state law may apply and I can't speak to those issues.
Have a cdr and medical exam with their dr. I'm confused how to answer something. Lets say they ask me if I can bend over. If technically, I can force myself to bend over, but it's painful, and I'm more sore than usual after and need to lay down...
Arrive early. Traffic or last minute confusion about the location of the CDR can get you on the wrong foot. Remember: early is on time!
I always suggest having someone go with you. Have them note the time when you go back to the examining room and return. Also, have a watch so you can note when the doctor began and ended the exam.
Written questions need to be answered truthfully. If there are limitations as you describe above in your Question, write them down somewhere on the form. The same is true for questions in the exam room.
The CDR (continuing disability review) means that you are already receiving benefits. Don't exaggerate or magnify things. If you have pain, say so. Excruciating pain, extreme pain - these words used to describe pain are subjective - and really may not mean anything to the doctor. If asked if you have pain, answer yes or no as appropriate. [if no further questions about pain are asked, ask to clarify later before you leave].
Be careful with how you express things: 24/7 pain would indicate you don't sleep - that is, how would you know??
Good luck!See question
A family member has a disabled adult daughter. She secured child support (CS) for her daughter as a minor. The ex then tried to apply for SSI for the daughter to offset a portion of the CS. SSA awarded SSI to the daughter. mother is rep payee.....
This matter is going to require an attorney familiar with SSI law and family law in your State. I don't think the POMS section says what you want it to say. However, with help from an experienced attorney, the overpayment may be overcome. Do not hesitate to contact Legal Aid if private attorneys are not interested in helping you. These, in my opinion, are more experienced and knowledgeable in overpayment cases, than private attorneys.See question
A friend in California married a woman in 1981 and they lived together for a year. Then this wife left him and disappeared and he never saw her again They never officially terminated their marriage or divorced. This friend is now engaged, and ...
I would suggest that your friend contact the department of vital statistics in the State where the person died. Normally, for an administrative fee, the death certificate can be obtained with an online request.
Your friend can place a toll-free call to 1-800-772-1213 can get the application started, with or without the death certificate. However, I recommend that your friend review http://www.socialsecurity.gov/planners/survivors/onyourown2.html so that he doesn't complicate or compromise any of his other benefits.See question
i had just won my case for s.s.i and i have planed on getting married but i need to know if it will mess with the s.s.i
When you applied for SSI benefits, you promised to report any changes. The first link below will provide you with what you need to report.
The second link answers the question: "If you get married, separated or divorced."
SSI benefits are based on assets. If a marriage changes yours, yes, it could "mess with the s.s.i."See question
