I'm sure they can figure out what they're doing, but I'm confused, which these days is not difficult I admit. Lately my brain isn't cooperating too much. So, jest of it is............Travis got notified that disability has accepted him and that he'll get x amt per month. Ok, fine, great, wonderful news. Then they go on to say they are back dating it from when he was declared disabled. Um ok, makes sense. Until you get to the date. They're back dating it a year. Travis didn't file a year ago. Now, hold on........not even gotten to the confusing part yet. lol So, same day he gets that one he gets one from SSI. It states that he'll continue to get x amt of money. And from what I've deduced so far, it's at the same time as the other........so he'll get both. Now my brain might not be cooperating, but I'm sure you're not supposed to get both. (while that would be great cuz the family income would shoot up to a positive instead of in the hole deep every month) And they seemed to know that disability is going to pay him too. I'm going to have to read over it again and then have easy child read over it tomorrow. He got something else today and I just told him (he read it, I didn't) to stick it in my file drawer I'll read it tomorrow with the others. Makes my head hurt, I swear. I'm sure these two are communicating with each other as they're actually the same darn thing basically. So what's up? Any known reason both would pay the boy? Cuz that just does not make sense to me.
