If you are following my story about Social Security Administration and Supplemental Security Income for Ben and waiting with bated breath for the end of the saga...you will have to wait a bit longer.
In my telephone conversation yesterday, the claims representative did tell me that based on the information we provided, we still have the whopping over payment. Our next step is to file a Waiver of Overpayment. I actually had the forms ready because I was pretty sure we were headed in that direction. Tomorrow I will drop it by the SSA office.
Thank you again for all the good thoughts and concern sent our way. We appreciate the support. This is just a small bump in the road, one we will learn from and move on. When Ben applies at 18 for SSI (the rules change and parents resources are not counted), we will be better prepared.
And one day, in the very far and distant future, we will laugh about our dealings with SSA.
