Supplemental Security Income

What Should I Do?

I became disabled as a minor and started receiving Social Security benefits. They had my dad listed as the wage earner. My dad passed away in 2004 and when I print out my proof of SSI income it still has my dad's SS# above mine but yet is states beginning Jan., 2017 that I am on SSI. I was 17 when I became disabled due to my heart and I am now 46 and married. I am up for review and I am scared to death that I will lose my SSI and Medicaid due to my husband's income. I am lost!!! There is no way that I can survive without that SSI amount and my Medicaid. What should I do?

What Can I Do?

I was a housewife but divorced my husband of 32 years; he remarried. I took my SS at 62 because I was having a hard time financially. Using his earnings only changed my benefits by $35 a month. Now I'm earning pretty good money , but I have increasing troubles with my health and am nearing 66 years old. I never got off of the early retirement at SS and have had to pay them back some of the money when my earnings were increased, which is okay. After they take out my Medicare, I only get $188 a month from SS and that amount is used up by my supplemental and Part D.

Is My Girlfriend Eligible For SSI?

My 67year old girlfriend receives widow benefits: Question is, Can she also sign-up to receive SSI? She's disabled and the amount she receives from Social Security in widows benefits is not enough to live on.


By SSI, I assume you mean Supplemental Security Income, which is a needs based program administered by the Social Security Administration. You may want to try using the eligibility screening tool on SSA's website to see if she could qualify:

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

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
