What Should I Do About The Large Unexplained Payment I Received?

Category: 

My wife of 56 yrs died on Jan 13 of this year, she received about 500 mo. from SS. I received a form from SS to file for the $255.00 death allowance, I filled it out and returned it. On march 1 $25,178.00 was put in my checking account by social security and at the same time my son who lives 350 miles from me, and is on SS disability had $4,722.00 put in his checking account, also by Social Security. We don't know what happened to bring this on, we are totally confused.

How Often Do I Need To Report My Earnings?

Category: 

Hi Larry, could you please inform me as to whether I need to report my earnings every payday or month? I have already set up a automatic deposit into my bank account when money is supposed to be paid. after I did my taxes, i saw that the SS office has already received my yearly tax info for 2017
I make 12.00 an hour now but i don't know if i will be getting a raise any time this year and if i do, do i need to report that also?
Thank you for your help.

Hi,

Am I Missing Something?

Category: 

Sorry that this is going to be complicated! :) My husband was a fairly new immigrant when he had a devastating accident (hit by another driver, with not enough insurance or wherewithal to help my husband) with major life-changing injuries (lost a leg to the hip, shattered his pelvis, his foot, an arm, his coccyx, his sternum, internal bleeding, etc. although luckily no brain injury or paralysis). He was a green card holder but had only 13 credits at the time and so could not get SSDI.

How Do I Track What My Age 70 Benefit Will Be?

Category: 

I have filed a restricted application for spousal benefits and it has been approved, however at My Social Security, the amount I would receive at age 70 is no longer available, instead it states that "you are receiving benefits". How do I now track what my age 70 benefit will be?

Thanks!

Hi,

You could use our software, or you could try calling or visiting a Social Security office.
