Re: Question????????????

I am not sure, but here is a phone # I found on the web. Call SSI admin, they will help you. Let me knwo what they say, I am curious. If this person is seeking medicla treatment, you shoudl ask about medicare as well. Even if you have a primary mdical insurance policy, medicare will pay the remaining balance. Good Luck!!

Social Security has a toll-free number that operates from 7AM to 7PM, Monday to Friday: 1-800-772-1213 If you have a touch-tone phone, recorded information and services are available 24 hours a day, including weekends and holidays. People who are deaf or hard of hearing may call our toll-free TTY number, 1-800-325-0778, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. on Monday through Friday. Please have your Social Security number handy when you call us
