These check stubs must be turned in each month either in person at the Social Security Office or through the mail. Always keep a copy of your check stubs. Paperwork can always get misplaced.
The easiest and safest way to receive your SSI checks is in your checking or savings account. This way you do not have to worry about your check being lost or stolen.
If you do not turn in your pay stubs you are probably have an SSI overpayment. This means in simple terms you are in deep trouble. SSI wants their money back. They will start recouping their money every month. They will come up with an amount which will be removed before you receive your money. Or you may lose your SSI altogether.
If by some slim chance you are receiving unemployment while you are receiving SSI you must report your earnings to the unemployment office. This is done by including the amount of money earned on the unemployment form you feel out when you receive your checks. Then let us take it one step further. You must give SSI a copy of every unemployment check stub.
The SSI money comes from one government plan and the unemployment money comes from another plan. If you think that it is government money and your income will be automatically adjusted by the computer, you are mistaken.
When your unemployment has ended you must supply the SSI or Social Security office with the copy of the unemployment. Then and only then can your account be adjusted properly.
Over payments are easy to do. Be smart. If you are receiving SSI monthly payments make sure you make sure it is reported to SSI.
You can fill out a waiver form so you can appeal your claim. When you are on SSI you must be able to be able to receive enough money to survive. Meaning home and food.
