Well, i now have to deal with social security once more. it is really frustrating because whoever I speak to gives me a completely different answer! I even stopped by the local security office on Friday. The woman behind the counter was at the utmost unhelpful after waiting an hour. I had qustions and needed to know how things will work when my son turns 18. I was concerend about a time lapse between months .
He is eligble for a adult child benifit, and some SSI. The S.S worker told me their was not going to be any time lapse. And that S.S will send me forms to fill out, and then call my son > Telling me he would be an adult. Yes, correct, technically he will be, but unsure if he will understand all the questions social security will ask. i will just put it on speaker phone .
Still not certain if I eill end up having to re apply for the SSi portion. I heard no, because he will get the adult chid one, and has been on SSI before. They still have his information, however, I figured they would make us start over for the SSI part. Nobody has given me a straight answer. I was told to call in mid April, then I was told to call in of May
I tried to ask the S. S worker about the SSI part, but she basically shunned me off, telling me it is too early.
Ok maybe it is , but i just want this process to move smoothly. The most part is his SSI portion. Tey won't let me know if I am going to need to start all over from scratch. And then the phone interview...Umm he is developmentally disabled, with cognitive delays, and they expect him to answer questions? All I was told that since he will be 18, consdered an adult they can. It will be awfully interesting for them to interview him..
now I get to wait on it, and at their merscy once again.
