There usually is an explanation, yes, but sometimes it is flat our error. My name is***** and I am here to assist you. I am a social security attorney in my private practice – that is ALL I do. Please let me know that my post here is coming through for you by typing a quick reply.

First, please tell me:

1) have you received any letter from SSA indicating they were reducing?

2) How much SS were you getting prior to this reduction?

3) Are you receiving retirement benefits or disability benefits (or another)?

4) And what is the post reduction amount you are now getting?
