Default I got beaten up really bad and went on antipsychotics

For 15 years and I got a lawyer in 2017 to win ssdi at 1,400 a month. The injury happened in 2007. Now ssdi took away 300 dollars from me per month and I only get 1100 a month. Does anyone know why that happened and why I didnít get ssdi in 2007?

Contact SSDI to find out, there is just too many drs reports, details & facts that we have no way to know.. and of course you shouldn't post those kind of details online..

You can have a trusted friend or family member help you with contacting SSDI if you need help.

I can only echo what Jomar has said.

I hope you can find a case worker, counselor, or even a lawyer to help you. Social Security should have sent you an explanation of any change in your benefits. They don't always do that apparently. Or maybe your address changed and they didn't know that. There are any number of reasons why you weren't notified.

Dealing with Social Security can take all day and many days. It might involve at least one in-person appearance at one of their offices. You'll need to have every scrap of paper concerning your case in pretty good order too.

This is where someone else is probably needed to help by telling you what is important and what isn't so important and what steps to go through to get to the answers you need.

If you are SSI it could be because you earned some income, received money owed you from another source, had someone pay part of your rent or for food etc.

echoes, that's a good point, and a lot of people don't seem to realize that SSI and SSDI are two different animals.

Ruben562 did mention SSDI but might have been changed to SSI at some point but didn't include that information. Is that possible, Ruben562?

it could be the raise in the cost of living ssdi payments starting in january 2024. in any case call your local social security office and ask them

Hi
If you have an account on ssa.gov you can log in and see if there are perhaps any notifications there for you?
You can also use the chatbot there to request a call back or call the main LOCAL number and then say "Help Desk" when prompted for an extension. That should get you through faster, and requesting a callback that way avoids the hours long wait times that can often occur on their phone system

SSI payments are lower than SSDI and so that may be the reduction reason? It all depends on your situation, and they are the only ones who can provide the details

you will often get better information from your local social security office. they have access to information that the 800 number and the help center do not.
