I need some advice on how to proceed. I was getting a

Hello! I need some advice on how to proceed. I was getting a certain amount of Social Security disability and I had to remortgage the place I'm living in because my partner passed away had a high mortgage and they based my mortgage on my SSD monthly payment. . But because I received a certain amount of pension money which I put towards the mortgage so I could lower it enough that I could pay it and I also had to take out several thousand from my IRA rollover to pay and inheritance taxes because I am a grade D beneficiary although I'm the heir. So although I did receive extra income as a result of his death the money did not go in my pocket it went towards the inheritance taxes and to pay off part of the house so I could afford the mortgage but now because I made over 100,000 so security ministration is taking an extra $133 out in Medicare fees called IRMAA along with the regular standard Medicare premium which now puts my Medicare fees close to $300 and lowers my monthly SSD by $133 /month. So now it's questionable whether I can afford the mortgage mortgage with a reduced monthly check and I'm wondering how to approach so security on this issue?

I receive Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid benefits.

I receive Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid benefits. I'm eligible to receive Medicare/Social Security benefits because I was a minor when preeminently disabled from an accident. I receive food stamps as well. An issue with food stamps is why I write you.My monthly award from food stamps seems relatively low at only $16. My father passed and I live alone in his home. I pay utilities and a good amount of money for medical supplies/equipment, as well as for food and personal attendants. For all these expenses, I believed I would be eligible for more benefits.I would like your help to appeal my award amount. I'm curious if I left out information and failed to properly total expenses that may have negatively affected the amount of benefits awarded me.Thank you.
