Hi I'm hoping for some advice.I am the rep payee in maryland
for my 20 year old autistic son. A while back I received a letter stating that ssa had received a computer match with the treasury department And I was to report to the field office to discuss the finding. I went in and told them that I had no knowledge or possession of any resource. The rep said fine that was the end of the conversations and off we went.
Fast forward to last week. I went to get a paper filled out for his tuition waiver, and they asked me to stay for redetermination. My son was not present
..I agreed and the new rep immediately asked me about savings bonds! I advised her that I am not nor was I ever in possession of the resource. Apparently it puts him over the limit by 174.00...I said what am I supposed to do? She said to get copies and bring them in.gave me a redetermination showing he's still eligible and I left..but before I could even figure it all out they cut him off back to the effective date of 8/13. Ssa has not asked for any money back yet?
I have done some investigation and found that his biological father that i have been separatedsnd and divorced from for years has possession of the bonds! we do not discuss finances and services at all ever He stated that he intended to give my son the bonds as part of my sons inheritance In the future. I was truly unaware of the resource. How do you stop well meaning people from causing these kind of situations. Any help would be greatly appreciared
