Am I Eligible For An Interest Free Loan?

Category: 

Lawrence...I am on Social Security Income...I just learned I can apply for a
$1,000 interest free loan. Can I obtain an application from you? If not, where can I call to obtain one.
My local social security office in Jamesville, Wi. had no information.

I would appreciate a phone call or e-mail with the appropriate
application form.

I look forward to hearing from you ar your earliest convenience.

Thank You, Judith

Hi Judith,

Why Were My Benefits Stopped?

Category: 

Hi Larry, I am a UK citizen, living in France, but spent 20+ years living and working in the US (with a green card, as a permanent resident), with the usual monthly deductions (SS, retirement etc). I applied for my retirement benefits this past March, when I turned 62. All was well, my monthly payments started in April. Last month (September) I received an email from the US embassy rep in Paris saying there was a problem with my address. After an email and phone conversation he told me it was straightened out.

How Will My SS Be Affected If I Don't Pay Income Tax For The Next 10 Years?

Category: 

Hi I've lived and worked in Florida for 25 years but recently 3 years ago I moved to Mexico for a better job. I file my taxes every year but I get a 103,000 exemption because my residence is in Mexico now. I think I may stay here for the next 10 years working . How will this effect my SS earnings if its exempt and I dont pay any income tax for the next 10 years.
Thanks

Hi,

Will Social Security Pay My Husband's Benefits If We Move To Germany?

Category: 

My husband who will be 65 this month, receives social security disability from Germany. 1. We have always reported this as income, even though in Germany it is not taxable because it is small.
2. He is eligible to get even smaller social security from the US. Will they pay if we move back to Germany? ( he is a legal alien).

Hi,

Can I Continue To Make Contributions To My 401k?

Category: 

I am approaching 70 in a few months. I filed for social security benefits at 66 and immediately suspended the benefits. I have no intention of retiring as long as I can do the work I love (and get paid well paid for). I know I have to start collecting at 70, can I continue to make payments to my 401k, increasing them to the max to offset the additional income. Can I continue to make catch-up contributions to my 401k? Does my strategy make sense?

Hi,

How Can I Ask For SS Benefits Now?

Category: 

how can I ask for SS benefits now. I want to get out of this
country due to being police harassed and treated badly by the very people who
are supposed to be protecting us. They have it on tape of me just walking
across the street after work and the police pulled over and lied and said I
walked crossed the street caddie corner like, now what kind of stuff is that.
I've worked all my life, 2 jobs even at the same time and I need that money
to get the heck out of here. I can see why so many Americans have escaped-

What Recourse Does My Father Have From Social Security Stopping His Benefits?

Category: 

My father is 91 and has worked all his life since 1955 and retired in 1985. He is currently retired oversea and around 4 months ago he received a letter that SS has been trying to reach him via phone(of course it was the incorrect number) and that if he does not contact them to verify his credentials he would loose his benefits. We talked to SS but they asked for documents(naturalization papers) which I am not sure where they are, as my father is overseas it was a bit difficult to retrieve.
