Customer Question
My stepson is emotionally...

My stepson is emotionally disabled and I have been handling his SSDI contacts. He is on psychiatric meds for bipolar disease, and the Soc Sec admin ruled that he is now able to work, and his SSDI benefits were cancelled 2 1/2 years ago. We appealed that ruling, and the appeal process took 2 1/2 years, during which he continued to receive SSDI benefits. We believed in good faith that we were going to win our appeal. Unfortunately we lost. So now, Soc Sec is billing my stepson $35,281 for the money they kept paying him during the appeals process. So...my stepson, aged 51, has no assets except a 20-yr old car. He has no funds of his own, having been unable to work for the last 12 years during his disability. Although he is on medications which control his bipolar highs and lows, he still suffers from anxiety and depression, which keep him from working now. Can he be relieved of this debt? As I say, he has no assets of his own.

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 properly. Is there anything else important you think the Retirement Accountant should know?

Joe is still unable to work because of ongoing psychiatric disabilities. Can he be relieved of his $35,281 debt to the Soc Sec Admin?

Hi. Unfortunately, because there was a long delay, I'm not available to assist you at this time. Also, I usually am not available on the site on Saturdays either. I'm very sorry. As a result, I can opt out and let another expert take this question over. You won't be charged any extra. Thanks!
