You won't get denied just because you don't have an attorney, but you're much more likely to be successful if you have one. That's because an attorney will know what records you need and will argue why you should be considered disabled. However, you will need to get an attorney as soon as the...Read more »
I found a quantity papers relating to my grandparents. I assume old utility bills and store receipts may be discarded for recycling. However, many papers are tax returns or letters of communication with Social Security . Could these be used for identity theft even though the people involved have... Read more »
Go to Social Security for a replacement card. Ask your parents if they will give you a photocopy of the certificate which will speed up your getting the certificate. Ideally, see if there is a relative who they will listen to who will intervene, at least get them to give you copies of the birth...Read more »
The inheritance is $3636.00. I am due to get out of Northeast Center early 3/19 in a Medicaid program called TBI Waiver. Med resource is under $2,000, SSI would be problematic and I haven't called them, I received the check today. I want to do the right thing to do, I don't speak well on the... Read more »
My mother is disabled, cannot hold a job due to the disabilities. I take care of her and am paid for it(I’m her daughter). She cannot obtain SSDI due to not working enough to get it, due to being married most of her life. She was told to apply for SSI instead as she should get it due to... Read more »
She may be able to file SSD against ex husband's credits. She would not be eligible for SSI if she has income or more than $2000 in assets, regardless of severity of the medical conditions....Read more »

Under Title II, your income/assets are not relevant. The only income that is considered is if you've received other public benefits...Read more »
Under some circumstances, the answer is "yes" - but only with respect to child support, income taxes, criminal restitution, or Social Security overpayments. Give them a call and ask them about it - they'll at least be able to let you know to whom the debt is owed. There have been circumstances...Read more »
This income is exempt from creditors. However, you must keep the funds separate from other types of income and have proof it was never co-mingled. As a practical matter, it is possible to have the funds taken out of your bank account even if they are exempt - it's just they would need to be...Read more »
Not necessarily, and I would recommend you speak with an attorney local to you. SSI funds may generally not be garnished to satisfy child support obligations, but Disability funds may not be afforded these protections. Both programs require proof of disability. Additionally, an individual under...Read more »
The New York State Department of Labor is very good. For smaller claims such as yours filing a complaint with them for unpaid wages may work. Governor Cuomo and his state agencies are great! They truly care about all people who choose to live in our great state!
I only had a passport and no social card but they insisted they needed to have my physical card or get a receipt of request.

Minimum payments while we lived together. After we broke up 3 years ago he stopped making payments and refused to. About 2 years ago he came to my house and took the ring without me knowing because he still had his house key. I have been asking for the ring back or for him to make the payments he... Read more »
