Housing for SSDI

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Mon, 11/23/2020 - 11:41

I am on SSDI, and currently living in Detroit. I haven’t been enrolled in a voucher program or anything, but I am looking to move into a unit that I’m able to afford located here in the St Petersburg area. Currently I live in a building that has reduced rates for folks like myself, but I am completely clueless how to find this type of building down here. Would anyone be able to guide me to a website/organization able to assist me?

Why does someone with metastasized adeno non-small cell PD-L1 Carcinoma, that is approved for SSDI not get full Medicaid coverage or any Medical insurance coverage? When someone who gets SSI automatically does?

Blows my mind that someone with a condition that could end in death, yet worked up to the day they were diagnosed with this life ending condition does not get Medicaid or any insurance. With a diagnosis like this it should be automatic before people who get SSI. They have worked all their life and now need help and can't get it!!!! Something is very sadly wrong with this picture!!

Medicare Savings Plans

I am currently receiving SSDI and now after 24 months I'm told I have to pay for Medicare B, which is more expensive than paying for health insurance. Can I get financial assistance with one of the Medicare Savings Plans? I have a Special Needs Trust savings account; is that considered an asset for eligibility since I can't access it. Thank you

I have been approved for SSD and have received a check for back pay. I am in the process of a divorce. Is this considered community property? I have been told it is not.
I know that it can be decided by the State, but doesn't the Federal guideline explain that it is not considered community property or income?

Disability verification letter

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Wed, 11/04/2020 - 18:01

I filed for disability in May 30th 2020. I got approved with no lawyer.
My question? in my letter it says, beginning on Sept. 2020 the full monthly social security benefit before any deductions is $2000.(just a Made up amount). Then there are a few other things written in between there. Down at the bottom it says, we found that you became disabled under our rules March 30 2020.
They only paid me two months. I’m thinking sept. And October.
I thought I was supposed to get back pay from the date I filed or earlier. In there case March 30 2020. So what do I do?

Michigan Bridge Card & SSDI

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Tue, 10/20/2020 - 18:14

I am receiving SSDI and food stamps (bridge card) they just started taking out my medicare part A & B which costs me $177 out of my already small SSDI check. Then I just received a letter stating that "due to my change in income my food benefits will be decreased to $16" Why would they lower my food benefits after lowering my monthly income? Shouldn't it have increased?
Does anyone know how to get an increase in my SSDI payments AND my food benefits?
