Is There Some Way To Get My Children Back On SSI?

Hi,
My 2 disabled adult children are receiving DAC benefits. When my ex-husband passed away my childrens' SSI (735.00 + 22.10 ssp) decreased to 0.00 due to the DAC benefit (1,350) each that they get on the 3rd of the month being to high. This also made them ineligible for public benefit programs. As far as resuming SSI payment and public benefit programs is the only way to do is putting the DAC in a special needs trust or is there another way? I hate to see them lose entitlement to public benefits, entitlements, SSI, as it my have impact later in their lives. donna

Do I Need To Recontact Social Security?

I went to the soc sec office to report a change (someone moved out) and then I was told they were doing a redetermination for my son's SSI. I told them I didnt have the figures in front of me, I was guessing. When I got home and checked my figures were off (low) by about $130 for my sons share Do I have to go back into the ofc and do a new redetermination right away?
Thanks

Hi,

How Will My Son's SSI Be Affected If He Receives Social Security?

Hi there Larry!-----Okay my adult child has been on SSI since he was 18 -he is now 46---- $735 is his normal SSI payment-my ex-husband only gets 1000---which would mean- (I suppose) that my son would get $500-that amount is lower than the $735 he gets now, can you tell me how that works? Also, I will be getting about 2,300 (approx) next year when I am 66-at that point can my son get me ex's 500 and my 1150 at the same time?---------One more thing, under these circumstances, does he get to keep Medicaid? Thank You so so much

Hi,

Why Was My Son Switched From SSI To Social Security?

We have a mentally disabled son disabled since birth. He was on SSI until my husband started collecting SS Retirement at that time our son was automatically switched from SSI to SS and Medicare. Being disabled since birth he would get more help with having SSI in getting into a group home. Why did they switch him?

Thank You
Linda

Hi Linda,

How Would A State Retirement Benefit Affect My Brother's SSI?

My brother has been in a nursing facility for over 15 years, prior to that he was employed by a state agency. He was recently notified that he was eligible for a retirement benefit from that state agency. If he take the retirement benefit how would this impact his SSI benefit. If he withdraws all of the funds out to pay for funeral/burial planning services how would this impact his SSI benefit.

I am 48 and single. I was previously married for 18 years and divorced. I now receive SSI benefits due to seizures and some other things.

can I get SSI after 65 and drawing social security if I become disabled ?

Hi,

If you're age 65 or older, you don't need to be disabled to qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI), which is a needs based program administered by Social Security. However, you must meet all of the other requirements in order to qualify. For more information, refer to Social Security's website: https://www.ssa.gov/ssi/.

Am I Eligible For Supplemental Security Income?

While my husband was under hospice care i went thru the application process for myself to get SSI for my disabilities. SSA deemed me disabled by their requirements but was told that i could not collect any benefits and/or medical care myself for the disabilities bcuz i was married. Now since the passing of my spouse i receive widows benefits as well as survivors benefits for the two minor children still at home which is divided between the three of us equally according to husbands maximum family benefit amount.
