Good afternoon,

I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.

When your home in India is sold, you will be able to use the proceeds of the sale to buy a home here in the US for you to live in and that home will not be included in your countable assets and you can maintain your eligibility for SSI.

You may reply back to me using the Reply link and I will be happy to continue to assist you until I am able to address your concerns, to your satisfaction.

Please be so kind as to rate my service to you. That is the only way I am credited for assisting you.

I wish you and yours the best in 2016,
