Ralph, your situation with your son is something I have been looking for here in California, and cannot find. What is your home state? I heard that kind of facility with social security paying was available in Washington state, for example.

My DD is on SSI not Soc Sec Disability....fewer resources as far as I can tell.(Prior to her brain injury, she was physically ill for many years and did not have enough SS quarters to be covered.)


czarinav,

My home state is Michigan, but virtually all of my son's benefits are federal, not state. He receives both SSI and "Retirement, Survivors, and Disability Insurance". I am not really sure whether he receives this benefit because he is disabled, or because he is a "survivor". The claim number shown on the forms I receive are my wife's SSN, so it may be that this benefit is linked to his mother having passed away. At that time, I filled out a LOT of forms, including some to resurrect my son after Social Security somehow thought he was the one that had passed away.

I have a friend who is familiar with the services available in California, and will attempt to find out something more useful for you.

Ralph
