What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Kansas
My brother in-law was declared mentally incompantent a couple years ago. My husband is his DPOA and legal guardian and I was appointed his payee for his SSI. My question is this....their mother is wanting control of his SSI for her own personal gain and uses the fact that my brother in-law is an alcoholic and drug user. She has taken him to social security to have him sign over his payee to her. Is there any way we can stop this from happening. We do not want to see him loose everything he has due to his addictions and very possibly his life. Of course, my brother in-law is all for his mother being his SSI payee because she gives him cash and allows the drinking. What can we do to stop this? Or to protect him? PLEASE HELP!
