Cristina M. Lipan's answer It depends if you're receiving SSD (Title II) or SSI (Title XVI). Title II is based on your work history and that you paid into the system (like an insurance program). Under Title II, your income/assets are not relevant. The only income that is considered is if you've received other public benefits (workers comp, public assistance), then you would need to tell them. If you were approved under Title XVI, there are limits to the amount of income/assets you can have, so you may lose that, since it...
Gregory L Abbott's answer Assuming you can prove it, and it occurred in Oregon, your daughter simply needs to review everything in detail with a landlord-tenant attorney who practices in the same geographic area as the rental. Good luck.
Lana V. Elliott's answer Unfortunately,being an international student and having a social security card are not sufficient, on their own, grounds to apply for Green Card. There should be family, business, investment, or other relationship that would be a basis for a legal permanent residence (Green Card). I would recommend you to consult with an immigration attorney in your area to discuss your options and potential venues for obtaining Green Card.
T. J. Jesky's answer Generally this card (not valid for employment) is usually issued to students/immigrant visa holders since they cannot directly use this card to work freely in the United States without obeying the visa constraints.
If the status of the card has not changed, i.e., still a student, it is likely the Social Security will issue a replacement. Stop by your local Social Security Office, they can best answer this question, based on your current status.
Jonathan David Warner's answer 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 where I've been able to negotiate a release of the garnishment, based upon a debtor's financial hardship.
Consult with an attorney in your area regarding this matter.
Betsy Walits' answer If self represented, you’ll get a CD before your hearing. If represented, your Atty should be able to view the file at any time. SSA controls when people can/cannot view their file.
Barry W. Kaufman's answer Generally, under Florida law, SSI cannot be garnished. However, without knowing why the NY AG sued him and because a state agency is involved, and not a private creditor, the benefits may be able to taken by other means. He should contact his county legal aid office to see if he can get some legal advice there. Ignoring a lawsuit is never a good idea.
David Soble's answer Generally speaking a person who collects disability can own real estate. If you are speaking in terms of financing a property with a mortgage, then your disability income should be included in the income calculations, provided the disability is not temporary. So for financing purposes, disability income may not help you qualify to refinance or purchase a home.
Mark Oakley's answer She should not have any assets in her name or jointly with yours. You should establish a special needs trust to hold any assets you leave her in your will. That will protect the assets from disqualifying her from her benefits, while at the same time preserving the assets for her benefit and needs.
Mark A. Buterbaugh's answer More than likely you do not have current insured status. To be eligible for SSDI, you have to have enough work credits. Kind of like Unemployment. Check with your local SSA office and inquire with them what your 'date of last insured' is. For example, if your date of last insured is 3/31/2018, then the to be eligible for SSDI, you will have to be found disabled prior to 3/31/2018.
