Did your girlfriend find out the reason why she stopped getting money? Did you guys receive money for Christmas or whatever and put it in the bank? I've never had SSI or SSDI but I remember something about you cannot have over 2000 dollars (old information?) in your bank account. Could this be a possibility? I read through the whole thing and I know you do have an appointment already with the SSA office. I understand you have multiple disabilities and need SSI as well as medicaid/medicare for them.
As for everyone else talking about getting jobs instead of depending on SSI or SSDI, well I am sort of on the fence on that. I say you could always try looking for a work-from-home type of job with benefits. I'm sure you have already considered that as you seem somewhat smart and capable. Good luck!
