The Social Security Adm sent me a letter saying they were lowering the amt of money I would get each month. What should I do? No reason was given why, just lowered it. This the almost the worst possible thing that could have happened. Husband has dementia, I am disabled and so neither of us can work. We have some savings and are living on it and SS. Now this lowering. I can't afford to go to a lawyer and there are no free lawyers here in this small town. Should I go directly to the SS office which is downtown? I doubt it if the council on aging could help as they don't have a person to help with this. She quit on Friday. I really need this money and am unable to work. I am in constant pain. Please give me your advice.
