The issue in GetHuman975648's own words
I need help with my benefits. Last month $** was deducted as SSA believes I was over paid in *********, from self employment income. An SSA rep. informed me I filed taxes for **** for self employment income. I assure you I didn't & can't work at all as bad as I wish I could due to my health. I did as I was told by the rep., called the IRS, filled out a *****-Identity Theft Affidavit form, sent it to IRS, filled out "Request for Reconsideration" SSA-***-U* form and had it hand delivered to the nearest SSA office with copies of the *****-Identity Theft Affidavit form about ********** and haven't heard any response. My benefits are not enough for * person to live off of, let alone * (my daughter & I), especially now during a global pandemic. I was told if I filled out and turned in the Request for Reconsideration form that my benefits wouldn't be garnished, yet they were and will again soon. I need SOMEONE to help me please? I've got a terminal liver disease and recently, last Jan. I have cancer too. I am a victim of identity theft and now a victim of SSA withholding my benefits for something I didn't do or owe. I'm begging for someone, anyone with authority to help me fix this. I have done everything the rep. told me to do to prevent garnishment of my benefits and SSA is taking it anyway. Victimizing the victim, I honestly have more than I can handle on my plate with my health, no transportation, no support system, caring for a child without ever any child support, chronic pain & fatigue and all my benefits are spent on Rent, WiFi, * phone lines, my life insurance premium, whatever is left is how we buy food, hygiene & cleaning products....trust me it's not even close to being enough for basics. Please help me, stress causes my immune system to weaken and I just want to see my daughter graduate high school, after that you can take all my benefits away if it pleases you. I will succumb to my illnesses and I can't keep up the charade of we're OK here & have all we need while being this sick much longer anyway. I need you to replace the $** from Feb and March next so we can quarantine at home like we are all told to do now, but I can't buy provisions with monopoly money. I can't shut off any of the bills. no rent paid * homelessness (again). No WiFi * daughter can't complete school assignments online. No phones * No way to search for help or solutions or communicate with Dr's, SSA reps, resource hotlines. Please have someone qualified call me asap.**TIA - Rebecca Rasmussen * ***-***-****
