I am on SSA disability and have just received my monthly

Customer Question
again after about two years...
I am on SSA disability and have just received my monthly again after about two years. SSA owes me about 18 months of back pay. Every time I think that I am set to receive them they come with a reason not to pay. I live with 2 seniors who have keep my off the street for about two years this money was to go to them. I have a small scrape metal business that pays me about $40.00 a week now SSA has had a detective following me around also a tracker on my car. They are telling me that I have not reported my income. Well I was told by SSA to report it at the end of the year, it's not the end of the year. Also they have me traveling into Boston MA at least once a week which cost about $35.00 each time I go in. Where do they think I'm getting the money. My question is do I have any recourse with SSA. If it were not for the seniors I live with I would Be on the street. I owe them this money.

This isCustomer I will be further assisting you with the case.

It appears that SSA is alleging disability fraud based on the tip that SSA received that you are working and not reporting your income. To avoid this issue in the future, you need report any income that you received to the SSA on monthly basis. You should also go into the SSA's local office with your current earnings to date and file your report to bring your reporting up to date. For more information, click on the link below:

Kindly give a positive rating to my response so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for doing this.

Thank you for your cooperation.
