Why do they stop giving me benefits for SSI?

Hello,

I am Hearing impaired and I have been receiving benefits since I was 19. I am 26 now. I just moved to Davision, MI for my new life. I moved from Philadelphia, PA.

After completing my Master's Degree and my internship (no paid) from recent last summer, they have been sendin me letters to go see a specific person at the office in Northeast Philadelphia which I could not make it because I was still in school and was never notified. They sent a second letter as a warning that I must go to my appointment. So, I finally came home and went to the office. The lady at the office told me that the appointment had been rescheduled and will send me another letter in two weeks. In one week, I am moving to Michigan so the letter was never sent to my home in Philadelphia or in Michigan. So they told me that they will stop giving me benefits for September. What should I do? Contact Michigan office and explain?

Need a BIG help...

Thank you,

Phil

The article also gives an overview of how Social Security provides a better "rate of return" to low income workers.

Excerpts :

But in a nutshell, I can tell you that Maria’s $1,150 benefit represents about 90 percent of her average lifetime monthly wage. Whereas Frank’s $2,400 Social Security check is probably about 40 percent of his average monthly pre-retirement income.

Tips on Filing for Social Security Benefits

This is a good article with several tips on when and how to apply for Social Security benefits.

When to file :

* For a retirement or Medicare claim, file three months before you want your benefits to begin.

* For disability, file as soon as possible.

You can largely file online, with the notable exception of a survivor claim for a widow, widower or surviving child. Call Social Security to schedule an appointment.
