  • Hun, it is hard to get SSI. It is a long application process and they contact doctors and review medical records and such before approving someone. Maybe he has more wrong with him that you don't know about. They don't just hand out SSI.

  • I agree with the PP. It's very difficult to get social security benefits and there's no way he's getting benefits just because of blood pressure. You don't know the full story so don't assume he doesn't deserve the benefits. You have no clue what could be going on in his life.

  • If he's on SSI then they found a valid reason for it. Not just anyone can get it. Sounds to me like you're just trying to get more money out of him, and if that's not the case just simply stick him where it hurts. How about you just leave him alone and let him deal with his own issues?

  • he may be using the excuse when he tells other people he is on ssi, but it might be a lie...he might have a mental disability and most people won't tell the truth about that...and say something else

  • Well perhaps his HBP is so volitile that labor can cause health problems and death. You don't know the details behind it and daughter or not it's really not your business

  • See if there is a way you can report suspected fraud.

  • You can't make another person grow up and become more financial stable. It's their desire and passion for a better life...only if they want.
