My brother gets SSI for mental disability. He was in a facility for 7 mths. During the 7 mths he was in the facility, he was still getting SSI b/c I did not know it had to be reported. The money was used to pay his rent and other expenses while he was in the facility because I was never told that it would be a long term stay. I thought it was just one month and he would be out. So I continued to pay his rent and expense to keep his room. Then SSI found out that he was in a facility and stopped paying. A month later he was discharged from the hospital and started to get his payments again. SSI sent an over pymt letter stating the total amount of over 2k and that his future payments would be deducted by 10%. A few weeks later, I received a letter for an appt to bring 2 years bank statemts.
