There was 2 awards . One under ssi and the other ssdi since she worked nearly 40 years under ss, she filed a ssdi claim too The one they are currently asking her to wait for is a 17000.00 reduced down to 13,000 due to recoverable food stamp and 115.00 assistance before she got her ssdi award. I know they said the attorney could get paid under ssi at 25% limit 6000.00 . Her 74,000 check has not been as yet subjected to the 12 month rule but could it be ????Sorry to confuse the facts. She has a lawyer but is being very stobron about giving their office a call. I have been monotering her claim and attending all discussions that are permitted for 3 years untill she got the ssdi award in april of 2013. So can the lawyer collect from both ssi and ssdi up to the legal li,it of 25% or 6000 on each aforementioned claims?Thogther they exceed the 6000 limit
I want her to look at your helpfull answers. I am leaving a small 5.00 tip
She will get 1850 dollars a month under ssdi minus medicare. She was unemployed and sick with zero income so thats why she qualified for ssi durING THAT PERIOD but she also got retro for ssdi in the same time frame nearly 3 years.
Yes its almost to good to be but it IS. I applied for ssdi and was awarded in 1992 but I did not know I could get some ssi for the time I was not earning . I believed That the person either took ssdi because they had enough quarters or they took ssi because they did not have the quarters. I got 18
months of past ssdi benefits . Seems I could have gotten 18 months of SSI benefits too. What you don"t know can cost you. In my case another 9 thousand at 500 a month
Yes its almost to good to be but it IS. I applied for ssdi and was awarded in 1992 but I did not know I could get some ssi for the time I was not earning . Not necessarily. Only for post-SSI application months where you have very limited resources and no income, not even SSD retro income.
I believed That the person either took ssdi because they had enough quarters or they took ssi because they did not have the quarters. Hmm, unfortunate you didn't discuss with a lawyer then. Of course, in 1992, there were not very many of us that engaged in this kind of work.
I got 18 months of past ssdi benefits . Seems I could have gotten 18 months of SSI benefits too. If your SSDI was greater than the SSI max amount, in any of those months, it would have put you over the income limit and you wouldn't be eligible for SSI for those months. Remember, SSI is welfare and only for those that don't really have income to speak of for those particular months.
What you don"t know can cost you. Yes. In my case another 9 thousand at 500 a month Probably not - certainly not if you got SSDIB for those months. Unearned income such as SSDIB, in a month (retroactively), will count dollar for dollar against potential SSI benefit after the first $20. You can do that math and determine if your SSDIB would have kicked out your SSI.
I don't feel I was underpaid now. Thanks from Carly too
