Customer Question
wheelchair. . i...
My son was disabled in Nov. 1997. He is Paralized in a wheelchair. . i am divorced from his father since 1992. His father lives in Texas. In 2015 his dad filed for retirement beneifits and SSD contacted me regarding Matthew and said he was entitled to benefits. A few months later he began to collect SSD. In the following months we have received benefit only to have to pay them back because his dad earned to much. How does this work? What is the sense of receiving these benefits if we only have to give them back weeks later?
JA: These retirement benefits are supposed to help us but they can be so complicated! The Retirement Expert will help you get the most benefits propertly. Is there anything else important you think the Retirement Accountant should know?
Customer: Yes, the original call from the texas office of Social Security said Matthew should have been receiving benefits since 1997. I have documents where Matthew was denied benefits when I applied first in 1992 when the original brain tumor occurred.

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.

Your ex obviously applied for his retirement benefits before he reached his full retirement age of 66. What that means is that if he earned more than $15,720 in 2015 or 2016 (For 2017 that limit is $16,920), then for every 2 dollars he earned above that amount he was obligated to pay back social security $1. This is the same for anyone who is collecting a benefit based on your ex's work history.

This will continue to be a possible issue until your ex reached age 66. After age 66 there is no penalty and your son will receive the full amount of his benefit, withou8t any risk of social security asking for a repayment of some of the benefit paid.

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 remember to rate my service to you so that I can be compensated for helping you. There is no cost to you related to your rating my service to you. Thank you in advance.

I wish you and yours well in the New Year,

Doug
