I have been paying SOC separately. What recourse do I have to get money back? We live in California. My mom has early onset and severe Alzeimers. Nursing Home has taken control of my Mom's SS checks without my knowledge claiming they weren't being paid. I have been paying Share-of-Cost seperately not realizing they were getting the SS checks too. What recourse do I have to get overpayments back? What recourse do I have to gain control of SS checks again? Plan on going to SS office tomorrow to try and straighten that side of it out, and then have conference call with NH afterwards to deal with overpayments. Any advice whould greatly be appreciated. Thanks.
