Update: After Fully Favorable Decision

I got my approval letter from the ALJ office w/Fully Favorable decision.
Now I've received a letter from Alsup and my local SSA office.
I have an appointment tomorrow (by phone) for my SSI info.
I guess just because I was approved for SSI by the Judge doesn't make it final??? Will my spouses income go against me? arrghhh!
I called the SSA 800 number.....what a pain in the butt it is talking to some of these people/ Sometimes, you get a really nice person.....but today I got the opposite! I was told that there was activity showing from the Payment Center on my file. I asked what that meant and I was told that it meant (and she said it louder this time)....that there was ACTIVITY, didn't you hear me the first time?
I was too p'ed off to remain on the phone.

I will update after my phone appt.

Letter from Alsup says they will try to get any overpayment from my backpay. They say that they do it from my bank, after direct deposit.
But I'm not getting a direct deposit. I do not have DD set up (no more acct).
I called SSA several months back to have the Direct Deposit info removed when my acct was closed. I assume I will receive a check.
Can anyone tell me if they've been thru this?
Should I get a Paper Check in the mail? And if so, does SSA take the Insurance overpayment out first, or is the Insurance company going to have to rely on me sending it to them?
Can I pay them in monthly insyallments, just like they paid me? LOL
Just kidding.........we all need a little humor

Re: Update: After Fully Favorable Decision

Spouse income does count for SSI, if you are living together. If you are living in seperate homes, then it doesn't count.

Re: Update: After Fully Favorable Decision

Ray - I think Tweiler is right under most circumstances. You may want to make the separation legal. You can get much of the paperwork online and file yourself without having to hire a lawyer.

My parents were in a traumatic car accident and my Mother ended up in a nursing home and Father living with my brother. Since the living arrangement was medical necessity based, Dad had to file for legal separation so that Mom could get SSI. Although Dad was on SS, Mom was too young for Medicare and Mom's medical expenses would have cost Dad everything he had left, which belive me was not much.

Re: Update: After Fully Favorable Decision

OK - Had the phone interview. Still confused though. Does SSI go strictly by any income and/or assets or do they also use our cost of living to calculate?
For instance, if we lived on our families property rent free and did not have many bills but also had no income, does that help or hurt?

The day after the phone interview (today) we received a letter asking me to verify the info gathered from me.
The letter says if there needs to be any correction(s) I must do it within 10 days/ otherwise simply keep letter for my records.
So I suppose I get my SSI backpay within the next couple of weeks?

Does anyone have experience similar to this?

Still no word from Payment Center on my SSDI Backpay......still waiting.



Peace

Re: Update: After Fully Favorable Decision

In dh's case, he had to write a check to his insurance company. We would never have allowed the LTD company to access our account for the backpay. Expect the insurance company to be pretty persistant in trying to get their backpay.

SSI counts any income including your spouse's and assets when determining benefits. There is a limit on the amount of assets you can own that won't count against you. If you were able to get the name of the person that yelled at you when inquiring about SSI benefits, I'd feel inclined to talk to her super or write a letter of complaint.

From what I understand, SSDI backs out atty fees. Never heard of them sending backpay to the insurance company. You need to request that Allsup send you an itemized accounting of money they've paid you before you send them a check. Do you know if you have to pay for atty fees? One more point - dh was able to keep any cost of living raise that occurred during the time SSA found him to be disabled. The COL adjustment was backed out of the monthly benefit and backpay that was owed to the insurance company. Hopefully it's the same with Allsup.

Re: Update: After Fully Favorable Decision

I called SSA today to check on my claim as well. I was told it is at the processing center but they couldn't give me any more info on backpay. Told me I will receive my first monthly check in September. Also said that backpay is sent out within 60 days of date of first monthly check. So maybe I will have it before Christmas.
