You sound like all the others I've asked about my problem. I guess it is "assumed" by everyone that I agreed and signed documents stating that the nursing home can take my check. I never did such a thing. I was brought to the nursing home because the hospital I was in kicked me out before I was fully recovered from my injuries. Meanwhile the Social Security Administration just sends my check to the address of the nursing home and they simply deposted the check. I have no idea how it was deposited without my signature but it was. I don't know a thing about forgery. Well thanks for the reply. Take my 40 bucks but it's really sad I live in a country where a disabled person's monthly check can go to a 230 bed institution taking in God knows how much money.. Have a Happy New Year. Perhaps the day will come when the younger generation relies on social security and gets it stolen from them as it has to me.Maybe then laws will be in place to prevent stolen disability checks.
Next time perhaps you can tell me why nursing homes can't forge my ss checks and not how they can take my checks. I already know they can steal my checks.
The nursing home cannot just take your check without there being some type of authorization. They are entitled to be paid for their services and normally the check is transferred to the nursing home. No one online can tell you whether they have the proper authorization or not. You are going to have to talk with the home's business office to find out what is going on and if they are actually receiving your checks. If they are, you are entitled to see the paperwork that they used to authorize the transfer in order for you to determine whether they have acted properly or not. Usually someone with your POA would first go to the local SS office and find out from them.
Why is it so difficult for people to admit they are wrong? Especially women. I asked it a nursing home can take my check which they already did but of course they won't admit it. I'm relying on the treasury department to find out what happened to my check. Then I asked a so called attorney if they could steal much check. I paid 40 bucks to get all the reasons why they can take my check. You can keep the money. Just admit the question wasn't answered properly.
