I have been collecting Social Security for 10 years. My husband has been collecting for 2 years. He just received word that his benefit amount is increasing by $20 a month and that mine is decreasing by $820 a month! Why and what can I do to appeal this?
My daughter and grandchild were receiving widow and survivors benefits. My daughter was incarcerated so she lost her benefits. Where does the benefits she was receiving go? Also shouldn't she start receiving them again once she was released? Thanks
Why did I get $45.00 deposit from SSA today 10/14/2021
Hi. I have no way of knowing why you received a deposit. Sometimes people will receive extra or irregular Social Security benefit payments as a result of benefit recomputations. The most common cause of a recomputation is to include additional earnings that the person had after starting to draw benefits, but I don't know if that's what caused your deposit.
I received a letter from my caseworker and stated sorry to hear the loss of a family member and has my estranged husband. How do I find out if this is correct?
I received a deposit of $141.00 today October 12 can you tell me what this deposit is for?
Hi. No, I have no idea. Sometimes people will receive extra or irregular Social Security benefit payments as a result of benefit recomputations. The most common cause of a recomputation is to include additional earnings that the person had after starting to draw benefits, but I wouldn't have any way of knowing if that's what caused the payment that you received.
Should my live in partner and myself marry after 16 years. He has asked me and I have said yes. We are just dragging our feet on putting together a date to go do it.
So I would still wait with no money for 5 months
Hi. We receive a lot of questions, so I don't know whether or not your question is a follow up to a response to a previous question. In any case, I can't give you any advice if I don't know what your circumstances are.

Hi. There's no way to get that information other than by contacting Social Security. Currently your only option is to call Social Security, and the best number to use is 800-772-1213.
I keep getting conflicting opinions about my remaining ssdi backpay. Ive gad 5 ss reps tell me i was owed 12005 still.2 reps said im paid in full.how do i find out the truth?
Hi. I'm assuming that you've recently been awarded disability benefits. If you had an attorney handling your claim and/or appeal then the attorney should be able to find out and tell you if you have any back pay coming. Otherwise, it's chancy getting reliable information from Social Security representatives. Some are well trained, and others not so much.
