Social security filter: back-pay now being an overpayment. Options?

SSI gave me 3 months of backpay and now is reversing course, saying I owe them, freezing my SSI payments. I've got a tight timeframe, not sure what to do to navigate this. Snowflake details under the fold. [more inside]

I pay the creditor or I pay the government... any other options?

I'm on SSI for disability, with a long-outstanding credit card debt that's gone to collections. They keep offering me settlements, but a settlement would produce a 1099-C, and Social Security would count the cancelled debt amount as unearned income, which they take dollar-for-dollar out of my SSI checks. That's no better than paying the debt in full (which has been impossible for years and will be for years to come). Do I have any options other than continuing to ignore them? [more inside]

Help me properly file for disability [SSI]

This is me three years ago. A lot has happened since I wrote that post. My brother got on disability, I had access to medical and psychiatric care for the first time in my life, and while I was still mostly homebound I had hope that our lives would eventually get better. Then my brother died quickly after a cancer diagnosis, I had a horrible, god-awful experience in a psychiatric hospital, stopped seeing my psychiatrist, rationalized not taking my medication because I would soon be without insurance anyway, and I pushed the only people willing and able to help me away. I've been trying and failing and giving up for almost a year. This is me three years later trying again. [more inside]

Help me with SSI information

A relative of mine is on SSI (and has been for a decade). He has always lived with family members until recently. He just moved to a different state (WA) and rented a room in a house occupied by a couple. The rental house owners put him on the lease. Of the couple, only the female is on the lease. When he went to the SSA office to change address, the worker wants the couples income and expense information before they will approve his SSI transfer. Is this normal? [more inside]

Do I have to tell the temp agency that I am on an SSI disability?

I went to a temp agency. Their paperwork included some questions to see if an employer would qualify for a Work Opportunity Tax Credit by hiring me. I answered yes, because I have received SSI within the last 60 days. Could I have chosen not to reveal my disability status without being accused of giving false information? [more inside]
