    How to find out if someone is getting SSDI?

    What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?
    Georgia

    Hello!

    My question is how to find out if someone is drawing SSDI benefits. I have a friend who wants to find out if their ex-spouse is getting benefits.

    Thanks!

    Well , I imagine if the X kicks the bucket , the friend would want to apply for benefits from the deceased .

    Or possibly benefits for any children .

    Why not tell the friend to call SSA and find out .

    Or, maybe "friend" wants some of that chunk of backpay. Or "friend" resents ex not working and getting money every month.

    But SSDI and benefits for surviving children are 2 very different things.

    "Friend" can call SSA but I doubt they will give any information on the phone. Privacy, confidentiality, etc.

    Personally, I think SSI is everybody's business.

    Because I don't spend much time on this site I am not aware of the "local customs" and this seems a good opportunity to ask ... is it not the responsibility of the person who started the thread to close it? Except, of course, when a site administrator chooses to do so.

    It's just common courtesy not to respond to years-old threads.

    That's the "local custom" here.

    Especially when the Simplemind commented on SSI while the thread was about SSDI. Sheesh!
