Please allow me several minutes to read your facts and type my response.

If you receive a notice or email regarding a phone call for an extra price that comes directly from the website and not from me and I have no control over the sending of the notice or email. I don't take part in the telephone program and only work through this format and under your facts this format should be sufficient.

Your questions sound more rhetorical than what you would really want to know. Is there a specific question with which I could assist?

Also, when did you receive the letter saying they are taking your SSI away?

What type of Social Security are you still being paid?
