1) My SSD payment counts against SSI, and it's the one causes my SSI to reduce not my family job income.
2) No you can't get or qualify for SSI without qualify or receive Social Security Disability. Only one way you can get SSI without SSD if you never work at all.
3) I asked for my medical record, they told me they would send this and that, call me, but never did. I called to verify and someone I talked to told me they have not seen any request for that on their system, and he said he would process it for me again. Still, week pass nothing come to my mail, so I went there and that's when I signed for it at last.
Now here is the full story:
Before l started receiving SS payment, on my first week interview, l was told how much my monthly payment would be assuming that l apply and qualify for both: Social Security Payment and SSI total would be around $800+. That's what they told me.
Since then they told me they use family income to figure out how much SSI I can get and I had my girlfriend provides her income monthly gross to SS.
Then I started First 3 pay checks l received was 674 SSI, a 400 something not sure what for, and later a lump sum payment. After taht thereafter, they reduce the SSI to 173 and 521 which is they said is my Social Security Disability payment.
Then I called and to ask why they reduce it, and they told was because of family home income, but the family income is my Social Security Disability which is 521 and not her income.
According to SS administrative staff, her income has no effect on the reason they reduced the SSI., but my SSD 521 a month.
They said the reason they gave me the 674 month before then was because my SSD payment was not begin yet. However, from the start of my application they were already told me how much both together SSD and SSI would be at least 800+ if I qualify.
Lastly, I went back again to ask them why they want her income information on my case if they not using it against me. Then again they told me they use it to determine the SSI not for SSD.
Also they said my expense such as rent and utilities payment they do not care.What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?
