SSA help? I know this is a totally off-the-wall question, but my mom is on SSA (in CA) and they're now saying that she owes money, and are threatening to cut her SSA to half of what she's been living on. Her final appeal before a judge is on Thursday. She has an Advocate from Bay Area Legal Aid, but is worried that she's not getting the support she needs. She is horrified, scared, and just wrecked by this - and really has no money (living on SSA/SSI her whole life as she's blind) to be able to afford such a huge cut in her "income". Does anyone have any experience with SSA? Should she get a lawyer? Can I go help her (by shooting nasty looks and swearing at the people who are scaring my mom)? Any thoughts would be hugely appreciated - THANK YOU!!!

swearing won't help making sure all her papers are in order, and she has complete medical and psychiatric records proving her blindness and other medical conditions may help. Having legal aid is good. Lawyer may be necessary if this goes badly. Having letters from doctor and psychiatrist in hand is a good idea. I don't work with the SSA/SSI system itself, but see a lot of disabled people in my practice. It's getting tougher and tougher to qualify or stay qualified.

I don't have personal experience with this but the guvmint is pretty good at prematurely cutting off SSA benefits. A close friend worked month and made x amount, so SSA determined that was now their monthly income, and tried to cancel my friend's benefits. All my friend had to do was hang in and keep proving that they had no monthly income, that they were still below the poverty line, and eventually SSA resumed benefits - and even retroactively reimbursed some of the lost money. The fucked up thing is, the system expects due diligence - and more - from people that by definition need and deserve extra help and consideration. And who get only a fraction of the help they deserve, I might add. It's scary stuff, but if you have documentation, the benefits should be resumed. Good luck with this, mistakes in SSA accounting are legion. But eventually they rectify.

Thank you both so much I typed the "so much", it sounded so trite to me -but really, I mean it. Thank you. My mom also thanks you. I talked to her tonight, and she just broke down. I want to help her so bad, and I just don't know what to do except to get the best help she can (and it surely isn't me - I promise not to really swear at anyone who has my mom's life in their hands! - but I'm just a hot tempered goober who wants to help their mom, and don't know anything except that beaurocracy is cold and ineffectual, and she's trapped in that world now). She's got her documentation from doctors all together, as well as her monthly bills (grocery receipts, prescriptions, etc.) all together. I'm worried about the Advocate and whether or not she helped back when this began...when they first cut her check in half, the Advocate had her "create" a budget that filled (to the penny) the new amount...and SSA said "great - you can *totally* live on 1/2 the amount you've been getting". I'm so worried.

I can only imagine, and I hope it works out this much worry should not be visited on folks that need and deserve the meager help that SSA provides. Please know we're rooting for you, and hoping the government does the right thing. Keep us posted!

    Here is my suggestion Yes on getting a lawyer and you might contact her senator. SSA is very political and Senators can pull strings sometimes for you. My parents got in troubles with the tax department once and the Oregon Senator really cleared the way for them.

    Yes, get her someone better than a Legal Aid advocate. I wonder why they did that. Pitiful cutting a blind woman's income. Good luck to you.
