I finally became the "SS Payee" on my mother's account today. The SS clerk read off the account number to the direct deposit account at her credit union. I told him that was not her checking account number nor her routing number. He responded saying that is where the money has been going. After I got off of the phone I checked her credit union account I realized that no deposits have been made into her account since Feb. 26, this year! That explains why for the past 6 weeks I never received the 1099 copy that I have been asking for, the address did not match either of the ONLY 2 addresses that could have ever been given to SS. Now I have to proceed with the police dept. for identity theft for my mother. Does anyone know if SS will reimburse us for the missing $5000?
