Hi,

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear about your situation.

Your child may be entitled to Social Security Benefits based on your record. That money does not reduce your benefit, but will reduce the amount of child support you have to pay. Contact Social Security to see if your child is eligible. You'll be able to move to modify the support amount of the benefits are approved.

Also, if your only income is Social Security Disability (SSDI), you may want to look into applying for Supplemental Security Insurance (SSI). That is need-based assistance that might allow you to get a second check each month.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reply WITHOUT RATING so I may address them. My goal is to provide you with excellent customer service. Otherwise, please rate my answer positively so I get credit for assisting you today. Mobile users may have to scroll to the right. Thank you.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
