I’m writing because I have a son with a mental disorder who was collecting SSI. They cut his check because I had his name on a bank account so that when I passed away, he could get the money and close the account.
My son did not have anything to do with the account, nor did he write any checks or use a debit card for this account.
I got a letter saying that my son has to repay the SSI that he collected in the amount of $15,499.
He does not have a job nor do we have the money to pay this back.
I had to close my bank account with Bank of America because they would not take his name off the account. I closed the account as the only way to take him off, and he still got his check taken away.
He also cannot have more than $1,500 of life insurance.
My son cannot have anything in his name left to him when I do pass away. If he does, the state of California will take it away. This state and country really sucks. I will fight to the end.
