I've been getting SSI for about 10 years. I recently had a review, continuing benefits were approved with noticed that I'd likely be up for review in another 5-7 years. I even got a letter to let me know benefit amount was increasing.
Now, with absolutely no notice, I'm not getting benefits.
Immediately contact your SSI office for a written explanation. You should also file an appeal to preserve your ability to dispute the cessation and to potentially keep your benefits coming to you during the appeal process. You may need to retain an experienced SS attorney to assist you in getting your benefits resinstated.
First thing I would do is to immediately contact your local office and speak to someone there. Could be a simple issue that needs to be addressed, may be more complicated (such as something that needs to be appealed). Best to contact your SSA for more information at this time.
All answers are for general information purposes only and do not constitute an attorney-client relationship. No lawyer-client relationship is established unless and until representation paperwork has been signed by both the client and attorney. All answers in this forum are based on the limited facts provided and the answer may change with additional information. If you are currently represented by an attorney, it is always recommended that you follow the advice of your attorney or discuss any actions you wish to take with your attorney before anything else, as they are likely most familiar with the details of your case. No answer is a substitute for advice from an attorney familiar with all of the facts of a case, and it is recommended that the advice and assistance of an attorney be sought in legal matters.
I agree with both prior answers. There must be a reason for the cessation and it must be supplied in writing. There are very short time limits for appeals so reach out to the SSA immediately. Right this minute. Then contact a local SS attorney for assistance.
