That’s the account into which his Social Security Disability automatically deposits. Or did until this month.
That’s the account on which dad is the payee so that the funds can be used to support the kid.
Got on the phone to Social Security. They are saying he’s too old for benefits as a student under his mother’s SSD. I’m saying that’s not the benefit he was receiving.
I did all the paperwork, including the establishment of legal guardianship and the kid’s own bank account, to have him cared for as a disabled adult in his own right (which is what he is). That’s why I did the hours of online documentation and sent all of his medical records and releases to Social Security. That’s why… hell, I’m not going to make myself sick(er) saying this all over again.
Waiting for them to call back. Unless I go on a crime spree or just wander off into the Badlands. What I said on Facebook:
On hold with Social Security. Autistic kid’s disability benefit has ceased. They had him down as receiving some kind of “student benefit.” I had done all the paperwork, medical records, etc. for his full disability. Upshot is, there’s a big check bouncing around because the account on which it was written didn’t receive the expected monthly deposit. I’m supposed to turn 55 this week. Might not make it. The season of chaos and stress does not seem to end and it’s going to be enough to make some part of my brain or cardiovascular system blow up.
