    I’m 61 and have been on ssdi since 2012. This past April they stopped my benefits and claimed I was overpaid due to too many resources. They counted things I have not owned in years andthings that belong to others against me. I filed an appeal and was told send in documentation and my checks would resume. It’s now 5 months later still no checks and I have borrowed from everyone I know just to live. How can they get away with this? Are they just waiting for me to die or what?

      I’m in the same boat as you are. I’ve been waiting since March 2021. No one at SSA can give me an idea as to when my funds will resume. As of right now I’m a freeloader.

      I didn’t receive my monthly check

    I live on a ssa fixed income. I have payments set up for the day my check is due. When my check is late I overdraw. I have to pay fees to get a payment through. It really makes me mad when it’s late. My check was due the 24th and I’m still waiting. I have a payment that I make on the 25th so I’m overdrawn. This life is stressful enough without having to wonder when I’ll get my check. Appreciate any help I can get with this problem.

    • Patty

If you still need to report a late, missing, or stolen Social Security payment, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions.
