Supplemental Security Income

Am I Getting Benefits Illegally?

I'm in serious trouble. I was in the hospital and forced to sign many, many unfilled-out forms. I'm on SSDI because I earned it and needed it. But now I have MASSHEALTH! Illegally! I own my condo! Now I got a letter that I have been switched to SSI! My monthly payment is now reduced, I'm not getting money to pay my mortgage December 12th, and I've been tricked into getting MASSHEALTH by the hospital!

How Will Turning Age 62 Affect My Sister's Benefits?

My sister has been receiving SSI since being determined to be disabled in 2015. She will turn 62 in November, 2021.
How will this affect her benefits? (She worked on and off at low paying jobs, having had difficulty staying employed). She currently receives about $1200 a month and $120 in food stamps. (She lives in Staten Island with $800 a month rent for a studio apartment, so you can see why I'm concerned). Thank you for any info and advice you can provide.

Hi,

What Can I Do?

I've been on SSI recently received a letter from Social Security stating that I had to come in and get on Social Security. So I did. As a result of making 3 dollars a.month to much money, I'm now left disabled with no medical help. What can I do? I'm already being paid below poverty level.

Hi,

I wish I could help you, but I really don't know what to tell you. Social Security is my only area of expertise, so I'm not sure what other sources of assistance might be available to you.

Is SSI Counted As Income For Food Stamps?

I live in Mn. If I get ssi is that included in my income for food stamps?

Hi,

I'm sorry, but I'm not an expert on the SNAP program so I can't answer your question. My expertise is limited to Social Security benefits. You may be able to find an answer to your question on the Department of Agriculture's website: (https://www.fns.usda.gov/snap/eligibility#What are the SNAP income limits?), or you can check with the agency that handles the SNAP program in your area.

Best, Jerry
