Hi, I got...

Hi, I got a letter in the mail today about my SS benefits. It says that my monthly benefit will change to $433.40 That my prior amount was incorrect. Is this in my favor or not? I get a $1,034 a mo. I am 70 yrs. old & am disabled. Help!!

Accountant's Assistant: 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 the Retirement Accountant should be aware of?

Does the retirement expert work for SS. Meaning will he charge to get the info? I don't want to have to be waiting on pins & needles through the weekend..

Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

Just Answer is NOT associated with Social Security so we do not have access to your personal information.

Based on the information you provided, if your payment amount is DECREASING from $1,034 to $433.40--that is NOT in your favor.

My recommendation is to call Social Security as soon as possible to find out what is going on. The number is ***** Their hours of operation are 7:00 am to 7:00 pm, Monday through Friday.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
