Please don't make fun of me on this problem I have and also not to ridicule me as well. The below is an example on why the reason I need help in. This is an copy I sent to my Senator and Congressman from Maryland. My problem is that due to my current situation which I'll explain later. I am in the need of some help getting a better PC than the one I currently own and if possible an XBOX 360 as well. Here it is: I have been disabled since I was 7 because my father abused and molested me and I was placed in institutions from 8 years old to 21 years old. I was placed there because my father would threaten to kill anyone who would try to raise me. When I was 21 I had to move back to Maryland because my funding for me to stay in Devereux was cut. So I moved to my aunt’s house from 1991 to 1993 then I had moved to my fathers place because my aunt and I had a small falling out for a week. Anne Arundel Department of Social Services went to my father’s house to pick me up because I was found a place to live in a program called Project Homes. From 1993 to 1998 I was in Project Homes program. In 1998 to 2000 I was in a Residential Program that Omni House Mental Health has. In 2000 I moved on my own to Low Income Housing program that Anne Arundel County have. Here are the problems I have and can you please help me? Here they are: 1) Social Security Issues: I am being penalized because my wife and I are married. Both my wife and I are disabled and our SSI checks are our only means of income and can’t work at all. According to SSI since we are married they concider our finances together and because of this my SSI was cut from $603.00 to $144.25 and I am shorted $458.25 and I need that $458.25 because I need it to pay off some back bills that I need to pay and I need food with that money. According to SSI they can’t help a couple but helps the individual. The only way for me to get my SSI back to $603.00 is to divorce my wife Kelly Hanssen and I don’t want to do that. Getting Food Stamps are out the question because of our total amount we get in SSI is over the limit. I really need my money back and the only way to get it back is for the Federal Government to change the rules of Social Security Administration. I think that anyone who does get married and gets SSI they should not be penalized for it and should get the amount of SSI before they get married. My mother-in-law is angry with the Social Security Administration and the Government for what they did to me. My wife was crying because of this and so was I. I was checking my bank account from Bank Of America on Tuesday night at 4:00 AM because that is the time my Direct Deposit come in and the I found out that SSI took the $458.25 from me and I got the $144.25 and then I showed my wife and she was upset. I didn’t get any sleep that night and my wife only got 1 ½ hours of sleep and I tried to call SSA at 7:00 AM in the morning and then they could not help me and told me to call my local office and then I called them at 9:00 AM and I got no help and they hung up on me 4 times. So my mother-in-law took us to SSA Glen Burnie, Maryland office and was told of my situation and she didn’t like it. Please help me with this. I can't work because I am in a low income housing that is provided by The Housing Commission of Anne Arundel County (HCAAC) and as I said before I'm on SSI (Social Security Income) and I get my medical insurance through my SSI. If I did work my SSI will be cut and so my medical insurance and my wifes and mine rent will go up to a point that our SSI and paychecks can't pay the rent. This happened to someone that lives in the same situation as I and my wife is. His rent went up so high both his paycheck and SSI could not pay it so he had to quit working. I can't have my medical insurance taken away from me. If I did work SSI will not count the first $86.00 gross income and any thing made after that they take for every dollar ($1.00) they take two dollars ($2.00). So working for me is not feesable and no employer will not pay me under the table. I asked Gametrailers for help on this and because of this and other things I was banned. Please help me and thanks for the help and not making fun of me.
