Social Security Questions? Ask a Social Security Expert
Good afternoon,I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. In order to give you a clear and concise answer, I will need some additional information about the circumstances, please.
1. When you say your social security check, do you mean your SSI (Supplemental Security Income) check? SSI is not social security but rather is a form of state welfare benefit that is funded by social security but also handled through the individual state you happen to be in, and is handled quite differently from a traditional social security benefit.
2. Are you also receiving a social security retirement benefit payment monthly?
Thanks for the information.
Are you receiving benefits because you are disabled and low income.
Did you have to prove that you are low income to get your benefit?
Hi Bill, good evening,
3. If you are not disabled (10% from the VA seems unlikely to qualify you as disabled by the Social Security Administration---but possible, I guess, depending on the disability), and you are not retired, why are you receiving social security benefits of any kind?
4. Why are you not able to work---specifically?
5. All of these questions are related to nothing more than trying to determine how, and why, you are eligible for social security (which you paid for while working through taxes) or SSI (welfare). Until I can figure this out, there is no way I can answer you. Telling me that your payment is coded as SSA simply means that the social security administration is behind this---and unfortunately, this tells me nothing useful.
6. What is your present age?
7. When did you first begin receiving any social security benefits----SSI or SSDI? What year?
I am unable to further assist you in this matter, and I am going to opt out of your question and open this up for other professionals.Your question is being placed back in the question list for other professionals to see, and to respond to. You do not have to stay online for the question to be active. Should another professional pick it up, you should be alerted by email unless you actively disable this feature.There is no need for you to reply at this time as this may "lock" your question back to me, thus inadvertently delaying other professionals' access to it.I apologize for any inconvenience and wish you well in your future.Doug
