Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question and respond.
You can only claim one home here so you need to make a decision where you are claiming as your principal residence.You are allowed to relocate here to another residence here.
You can do this online or by phone.You can change your residence with social security.They can straighten this out here.
Perhaps they did not understand you wanted to relocate and claim new home address.
I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.Thanks again.
Yes they can hold up your checks. You can move where you claim to your sisters here and continue to try to sell the house.You would forward the mail here and notify social security of the change.Or you can go back home for a day or two and return back.There are ways around this you just have to pick one here.
Yes they can so you need to go on and claim sisters residence for SSI purposes hoping the house will sell.I think that solves your problems with SSI.
If you want to claim your home residence then you have to return to it once every 30 days to avoid problems.Thats another option until it sells.You just have to pick one here.You would have to return to it and spend a day or two to avoid SSI problems.They are just telling you only one residence.You may just want to return for a short visit, they can make you choose.Since there are issues with capital gains maybe you go home for a short visit here. Call SSI from this home and tell them you are still living there.Best you can do here.
Thanks again for the chance to help.
