I was a CFO at a non-profit. I was involved in a serious car accident. Had excellent job review. Out of work 5 months. Spine damaged & minor speech impairment. Noticed irregular financial transactions by my boss. Within a week I was fired saying that I was incompetent. After recovering further, I tried to get another job. Each time it came to references, my boss would say that I was a drug addict or had Alzheimers or other allegations. Then brag about it to my past employees. Impossible to get a job. I could afford to retire. So I did. At 65, medicare notice my issues. Applied for disability, which I received. My former boss filled out questions from SSA. We decided to adopt a child. Former boss sent the review agency all my SSA disability information, personnel file, opinion that I had dementia, and other malicious comments. Immediately kicked out of the program. Those records were then sent to over 100 agencies and government offices to black list me. I can handle the loses. But, I want to malicious attacks to stop. Before I have an atty sent them a letter, I would like SSA to investigate them and retrieve all my records. How do I get SSA to investigate and do this?
If this boss is making false statements about you with a malicious intent to harm you, you may be able to bring a claim against him. More facts would be needed though. You should contact an attorney for a free consultation to flush things out in more detail.
