Barbara:

Thanks for the replies. I hadn't ever heard of not being able to re-apply for certain time period. He said he was born in 1945, which would make him 67 so there must be something else going on.

They are not trying to set up a scam. I was unable to help them with anything more than getting the homeless man an email address and a Facebook page. I really had no idea how to set up a webpage for him that would be free and even if there was, how that would bring him money.


How do you KNOW they're "not trying to set up a scam"?

Yes, there's something else going on. As many have said, they need to simply go to the SS office and apply. I suspect the applicant is (sorry) too dumb, is unwilling to apply because he lacks the required 40 quarters of work, or has some kind of criminal background.

I'd watch them carefully. Sorry to sound so suspicious, but something seems "off" here.

Good luck. You ARE a kind person!

Merry Christmas!
