    • The reason I asked this question is because my sister inlaws money is not being spent on her and her needs and from what I found out today her finances are dwendling away fast because of her son and his wife spending it on their own needs, she spoke to her friend att the bank today and she told her what her final amount in her account was and it is almost gone. They never let her see her bank statements or anything and something needs to be done, she is wanting me to take over as her executor and herson has said to her he doesn’t want to do it anylonger, well hell I guess not he has spent all the money, I just want to know what can be done before she is broke and homeless?

    • Msj, Good to know about SS.

      Neicy, I have been thinking about your SIL. I would also investigate elder abuse laws in your state. I would think that the social secrity office could help you with resources.

      Good luck and keep us posted!

      Mary

    • Neicy....my credit union has now started opening up fudiciary accounts..so I’m a little familiar with all of this.  

      Social security for one does not recognize POA’s  (power of attorneys).  A doctor has to declare a person incapable of handling their affairs.  

      If an adult (over the age of 18) has a guardian or a conservator that means the beneficiary is not able to handle their own finances and therefore cannot have any access to those funds.  If the beneficiary is receiving SSI funds...that ward or payee is responsible for showing social security where the money is being spent.  If these are just regular social security benefits due to being disable for whatever reason...they might not have to report those expenses.  My suggestion for your sister in law is to make an appointment with social security and you go with her and let them know that the funds are not being managed properly and that your sister in law’s needs are not being met.  You might want to call them first and make sure you have all your documentation before going to your appointment.
      As far as bank accounts are concerned...social security funds now have to be placed into a bank account that only those funds are put in there. You can not mix social security funds such as ssi....disability may be different but if they have a rep payee ...only social security can go into that account. If someone gives then a check for whatever...that money cannot go into that rep payee account. Does that make sense?
      In 2013...social security will all be direct deposited....no matter what kind of funds they are.  If you get funds from social security you will need to have a bank account for them to be direct deposited to....

      Ya’ll need to call social security...and find out what you need to bring or have and make an appointment.

    • The Elder abuse was great Idea I actually did that when I went back because of my Mom you all remember?  

      Well, I sent Neicy the link. They are wonderful, they assigned a caseworker to my Mom and they interviewed her in her home, all anonomously and didn’t upset anyone and now they do followups and ALL is GREAT!

      THAT stopped the bs my neice was pulling (The one my mom lives with) well, lives in her garage converted room. Was supposed to be a brand new guest house built with my mothers money.... oh well, long as she’s happy and healthy.  

      That organization really truly cares!
