yesterday I received a 20 something page document from SSI showing the breakdown by year and calculations of my backpay. I they deducted 1/2 of TANF payments for 2 people for the period of time I received tanf. Then they said SSI IS PLACING A hold on my first payment of backpay from SSI. I my SSA account doesn't show anything about backpay. I the hold is in place until they are told how much to deduct for general assistance frimfilung date actually the month of April when the protected filing date is 4/28/16. First SSI payment May 2014. Does anyone know if we are required to payback for the cash assistance, I emergency assistance for a storage unit xs 6 mos , hotel rent,  temp rental assistance, transportation checks for 15.00, payment of past due electric bills, etc?

Does SSI withhold first payment and then withhold second payment six months later and part if the remainder at a year? I do they just keep the first payment? I

Can they now deduct the calculated SSI backpay from the SSDI backpay and disburse the SSDI backpay now? Could I have to wait up to a year to receive both?

Where do we see info about the award letters on my SSA?

Thank you for sharing your incalculable knowledge and experiences.


The amount of SSI that they withhold depends on the amount of repayment requested by the state.

You will still get your SSDI backpay since only the payback is only from the SSI.  It can take 3 months to get SSDI backpay (especially with all the calculations necessary for your case) but it should not take a year.

Also, once they finish the SSI withholding amounts, if you will not continue to get SSI, you can request to receive the SSI backpay as a lump sum instead of the separate payments.  https://secure.ssa.gov/poms.nsf/lnx/0502101020

After a screw up I was left with no choice but to 'reapply' for SSDI. Of course, I was denied.
I noticed that the two initial denials were almost exactly the same. The first time I applied, I was medically denied.  They used records that were several years old to make a decision. Nothing I turned in was listed on the front page of reports used to determine my disability. The second application was also denied for the same reason. The second one also listed very old medical reports and none of my current records (which I again  had hand carried in with my application) were even mentioned.

Noticing the similarities, I decided to write to my Senator about this.  I explained what was happening and asked if she could take a look at my case and maybe prevent this from happening to me, or anyone else, again.
A month went by without response so, I emailed her to find out what was happening with my letter. I got a letter in the mail today. I should mention that, a few days after the email, I was sent more paperwork to fill out. The exact same paperwork that they had already requested and I faxed back.

The letter:

Dear Ms. *******

Thank you for contacting my office regarding your concerns with your Social Security Disability claim. I appreciate your bringing this to my attention and giving me an opportunity to see if my office can be of assistance.
I have asked Sarah Owens in my San Francisco office to assist you. Ms. Owens has contacted the Social Security Administration on your behalf. You will hear back from my office when a response is received from the agency, which usually takes from six to eight weeks.
Again, thank you for contacting me. My San Francisco staff will do all they can to help you.

Sincerely,
**************
United States Senator

If depression was an impairment that contributes to your being unable to work, then you should be seeing a mental health provider regularly as well.

Were you approved for physical impairments ? If your doctor wrote in your medical records the only thing he can do is treat the pain AND when you go in every 6 months you explain to your doctor how your physical impairments affect your ability to function AND he writes that in your medical records, you should be ok when it comes CDR time.

Anna Mary, you may or may not be eligible for Medicaid. Medicaid eligibility depends on household income. If you live in a state that did not expand Medicaid, if your meet the income requirements being disabled will make you eligible if you were not eligible before you were approved.  If you qualify for SSI for the 5 month waiting period, you will receive Medicaid for those 5 months. If I remember correctly, Medicaid is three months retroactive.

I read some more so I think I understand what you were asking now.

I just became eligible for SSDI this month, in January.  No back pay coming.

So I think that means I will be able to keep Medicaid for two years, assuming I still financially qualify, then have to go on Medicare.

Does that sound right?

Again, thanks.
