CDR: Filling out the SSA 820
« on: May 01, 2011, 01:32:04 PM »
Hi all,

Another question before I send this form in.  Is it a good idea or not to attach a copy of my schedule C to the form
for both years they are asking about? Will this help me or hurt me.  I just want to get it done and have them leave
me alone.

Correct me if I am wrong but doesn't the schedule C have a spot where you actually list the deductions you took such as office, rent, car payments, etc?  If so, then I wouldn't offer it unless they request it.  I would give them the figure you made for the years they requested it.  If you took deductions for any of your living expenses such as a home office or car payment, I would think that would figure into your income, even if it is tax deductible.  I am certainly not an expert on this topic but my feeling when it comes to social security is never give them more they need unless it helps your case 100%.

I want to update everyone in hopes that this situation may help others.  I was required to fill out the SSA 820 and SSA 821 for the first time in late April.  I was very anxious, as I do not want to be doing something wrong and lose my benefits.  So I filled them out with the great advice from all who helped me on this forum.  I sent the forms return receipt, with sig required. It arrived on May 3. 
Today  I recieved a response from SSA saying that Nov 2010 has been counted as my first "trial work month".  Following was instructions to inform them of the usual change in work or medical condition.  That was it!

Pheww.!  I was so scared when I saw that letter today.  But it worked out okay.  The bottom line is to always be honest but never offer more information than they request.  Thank you again for all who helped me back in April when I first recieved the requirement to fill out the above forms.

Kathy,
     Thank you so much for the update.  I am glad things worked out so well.  Your post is exactly what people need to read.  Be honest and don't elaborate.
