I hate this a lot.
Likewise! If the government makes a mistake, they should be able to catch it, right? Making mistakes is human, that’s understandable, but the thing with the guy who has CP? I have a friend who also has CP… he’s not collecting SS, but how do you “miss” something like this for so long?
That is absolutely terrible. We had it happen on a much smaller level a few years ago once D2 was born. Since DH receives SSDI our girls receive it as well until they turn 18. However, the amount we get “for children” is the same amount regardless of the number of children we have - each child’s portion is just smaller as you add children. D2 was born during covid and it took them over a year to process the paperwork that we had an additional child. So then they sent us a letter saying that for the past year D1 had received D2’s portion, they gave us a lump-sum amount that was the amount D2 had “missed” and said we owed the exact same amount back to them because it was overpayment that D1 received Their solution was to send us $0 for D1 for the next year until her “debt” was fully paid back.
It’s all so, so crazy!
Life is like a box of chocolates.
I love this … Thanks!
English is such a clusterfuck, it’s delightful
