redrose,

What a good way to start the week. First the good news about Emmi, then your great news about your check. Having your own home will give you such a sense of security and I hope it doesn't take you too long to find one. Making the move will be hard for you and I hope you can get a lot of help.

Take care of that incision! I hope the surgeon will give you something to help it heal.

And thanks for sharing your news with us. I know we'll all be anxious to hear how you house hunting is going.

Love,

Pat

Hi Rose! That's wonderful news. Things happen just when they are suppose to. At least that is what I believe. I hope you find just the right place for your family. Take care of that infection.

I forgot to tell you to file for dependent benefits for all your minor children. That will give you 600 a piece per month, and back pay on each. All you have to do is go in and put in an app for them, its really easy, like one sheet, since they already have all your info, and bring their birth certificates and social secuirity cards. Social security does not offer this info, but you are entitled to more money because you have children to support.
Love, Marji

Marji, unfortunately I had to do SSI because I was just short of the credits for SSDI so those kinds of benifits are unavailable. If they still allowed me to claim on my husband's account like they used to years ago I would be getting more money but still wouldn't get benifits for my kids.

I don't know how that works, the benefits my son got was SSI through my disability claim and I got ssi and then ssdi. they paid my backpay in ssi, which was less than half my ssdi and took half my back benefits, but paid my past medical bills, but I ended up filing bankruptcy anyway so there you go. From the hearing date forward I got my regular ssdi. Even though they awarded my son ssi, I thought it was based on my ssi, not ssdi. You might want to check with the 800 number people or if your lawyer is cool, ask them. You don't want them taking a piece of the kids benefits, if there is any way you can get them. I don't trust SSA local people that much. I was lied to so many times about my son and they completely mishandled everything.
Love, Marji

Marji I actually asked my lawyer and read all the regulations about the stuff for my kids. It is sad but yeah they will see nothing from it.

Wow, that's too bad because I thought that money was to help you live like a human being with your children. Without it, some families would be living on $600 a month, which is atrocious. I don't understand why if would be different between ssi and ssdi, but then nothing with social security makes any sense. With all the money they spend making things so confusing and treating us like criminals, they could just give us good benefits! I'm so glad fof you and just wanted to make sure you got all you deserve to get.
Love, Marji
