Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and thank you for contacting us. This is Dwayne B. and I’m an expert here and looking forward to assisting you today.
The best thing you can do at this point is to hire a lawyer and turn it over to them. They may be able to work out some kind of arrangement with the SSA but at this point anything you say to them can be used against you and they can misconstrue what you tell them.
The problem is that there is almost no defense against this other than "I didn't do it".
In addition, the SSA may require an audit of the entire time you were the payee for this person. How long were you payee? How good are your records of what the money was spent on (before the last 3 or 4 months)?
I have started providing an answer above and asked you a few questions that I need you to answer.
