Customer Question
Is it legal for...

Is it legal for a non-profit organization to take money from my social security check even though I do not use them

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Ohio

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

I opted out of Area Agency when they told me that I would have to pay $467.00 per month from my social security check

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I was on medicaid and they automatically cut that off as well
