ssi is being canceled?

I got a letter stating I will be receiving $0.00 in ssi benefits starting next month. My girlfriend, who is also deaf, got a similar letter. Is anyone else being canceled or getting similar letters?

No ssi means I will not have any medicare. No medicare means I will not have any prescription drug coverage. No prescription drug coverage means I will not have any seizure medications. No seizure medication means I will end up becoming very, very, very sick.

if you are on ssi then it should be a medicaid. medicare is for SSDI and retirement.

No, I did not call. I did however, have mom call and they said they are going to issue me a new check, for the ssi check they lost, at the local ssa office. That happens to be a totally separate problem though. They did not say anything about my ssi being canceled even though mother asked about that too. We will ask about my ssi being canceled tomorrow I guess.

I was thinking about getting my old job back at Safeway and just forgetting about social security. I worked there when I was in high school back in the mid 1990s for close to 3 years. Also, I do have a 2 year college degree, ged, two different college certificates, and lots of various skills. Based on all that I could probably get hired on very easily. Having multiple disabilities though I do think any of that is possible.

oh btw - I believe you just recently turned 19 so that means you will no longer be receiving SSI under your parent's guardianship. you simple just need to reapply under your own name rather than under your parent's name.

got it...... son?

I have medicare and medicaid both. I do not get welfare though. My medicaid is funded by medicare somehow. I know this to be a fact because the medicaid card has an "x" stamped on it underneath "medicare". When ssi gets canceled, so does medicare and as a result, medicaid too. That is the way it works in this state.

With the economy how it is and how discrimination is rampant, I think it is easier said than done...

when did you apply for SS benefit? anyone who apply for ss di and won't get medicare right away, and wait for 24 months later then to get medicare. I am not sure about SSI how long SSI gets medicaid right away or not.

Medicare and medicaid are at the health dept, not from SS office. SS offices are helping health dept by filling out the medicare and medicaid forms at SS office.

np np but I do advise you to listen to some ADers who understand fully about SSI, SDI, whatever. Just know that the coverage is TEMPORARY. Maybe your time was up.

I know many will disagree with me on this, but being deaf makes it all the more harder to find work not easier.
