I took widow benefits when I turned 60. Obviously my husband
I took widow benefits when I turned 60. Obviously my husband passed in 1993 and I got my SS based on his income. I have never stopped working so my questions is---why do I have SS taken out of my paychecks and is there any way I can get it back or stopped and if not, where does this money go?

About 30 days again, after initially being approved , I was
Hello, About 30 days again, after initially being approved for SSI, I was denied two weeks later because I had too much money in the bank (I didn't realize the threshold was $2000). Since then, I have paid bills such as a car payment and I only have about two grand, but the main problem is that they counted an “in trust of minor” savings account that belongs to my sixteen year old daughter that had about $9000 in it. That money does not belong to me and before I applied for Social Security, I was going to liquidate the account and give my daughter the cash, but the manager at Bank of America said that would not be necessary and Social Security would not count it!My question is can I reapply within the next 30 days with less cash in my accounts (and my daughter keep the money in hers?) Otherwise I continue to have zero income (and had been approved for $2086/month).Thanks very much.
Both my mother and father qualified social security benefit
Both my mother and father qualified for a social security benefit and were also vested in the Louisiana State Retirement system. My father passed away in 1997 and my mother has been receiving her state retirement checks and a discounted social security check drawn on her social security not my father's.It is my understanding that there were several bills passed in 1984, 1985, & 1986 that provide that if you were vested in the Louisiana State Retirement service by those times (10 years of service) that a spouse can draw on the other spouse's social security if it's higher.Can you guide me as to the steps I must follow to make that happen. Thanks Marc

I have just lost my job. I am 71 years of age. I have approximately $50,000. in loans and credit cards and I have a mortgage. What my wife and I receive with Social Security I have enough to pay my mortgage, utilities, insurance, and food. I am concerned that my creditors will attach my social security payments leaving us nothing to live on. Should I file for bankruptcy to save my home? Can my social security be garnished?
