are there templates for the room and board agreement
MICHELLE Mendes
01:32:13
I have helped families to make up there own. SSA does not have a template
Cc phone
01:32:56
if you are the 18 year olds guardian does that effect anything in terms of the room sns board agreement or anything else
MICHELLE Mendes
01:33:14
I do not believe so
Marilyn Andrews
01:34:39
Does a room and board agreement refer to money or to an agreement to the person's responsibilities or behavior criteria for living at home? I am asking in reference for someone with mental health and cognitive issues. thansk
VALLEY COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT CORP
01:35:00
Do you take the age ruction test for adults before applying? where do you get it
MICHELLE Mendes
01:36:39
Room and board refers only to the money for shared household expenses
VALLEY COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT CORP
01:37:17
Does parent documentation of the work situation, things like hallucinations, anxieties, etc work or should you report that to a therapist or medical person make it more official?
Cc phone
01:38:15
if you do collect room and board from your adult child I believe you then have to claim it on your taxes
MICHELLE Mendes
01:41:14
The room & board is actually having the person pay their "fair share of household expenses", not rent. I can send out additional info on this, but people could also consult their tax professional
VALLEY COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT CORP
01:42:07
I would like help for the room and board situation also
Lisa DiFrancesco
01:42:24
my son was not accepted by DDS , but is with DMH does all this information work the same way ? Thank you

Liz Lefrancois
01:43:16
I emailed my question but am I suppose to send it here .
janet williams
01:43:49
my daughter receives ssi. she receives income from servicenet's prospect meadow farm. does that income need to be reported and where/who does that get reported to?
Sharmia
01:44:21
what if my adult child work 12 hours a week in the summer do I have to report the income to the federal government?
MICHELLE Mendes
01:46:03
The DDS Caitlin refers to in presentation is Disability Determination services and is specific to SSA.. DDS, Department of Developmental Services would be the other agency besides DMH that a person may be connected to.
Lisa DiFrancesco
01:46:34
oooh ok thanks
MICHELLE Mendes
01:47:13
Any income must be reported to SSA if on SSI, even 12 hours in the summer. This would be the responsibility of the Rep Payee
janet williams
01:47:55
is there a specific form for SSA? Done online?
Sharmia
01:48:27
Thank you!
MICHELLE Mendes
01:48:56
a specific form for....?
janet williams
01:49:20
specific form for reporting income to ssa
MICHELLE Mendes
01:50:03
You can do by phone, as Rep Payee, or on the app. Info on this is in the Rep Payee handbook published by SSA
Cc phone
01:50:47
if you are applying for adult ssi at 18 is it correct to say you can’t start it earlier than the 18th birthday.? online it was sending me to the child disability form so I’m assuming it’s best to wait
janet williams
01:50:58
what is the app?
MICHELLE Mendes
01:51:21
I do not know the app, but you can get from SSA
Patricia Prior
01:52:50
Question; How often to does a SSI or SSDI reconsideration happen, Is there a timeline like very 3 years or is it random.. In adulthood testing isn't done as often as it might be done under 22...

cheryl
01:54:39
First, thank you so much for all of this information! We are going to start the application process, how far back do you need to go in providing Neuropsychs/testing, IEPS? Are they looking for most recent, all , or the first eval s that determined disability and most recent?

can they pay rent out of their monthly check so the money doesn’t pile up too much and do you need an agreement for that
Heidi Harris
02:12:18
If you do a setup with shared expenses do you (the parents) need to claim that as income to the IRS.
kb
02:13:42
How do we take “portion of money” out for room and board to have a record of it, if they do not yet have SSi money. She has no savings.
Dee
02:14:27
What about if they are over 21, but are unable to handle any money? Can the parent get the money and give a part to the child?
Nora Schwartz-Martin
02:15:50
Right now he and I share a checking
Dee
02:15:53
How do you become a Rep payee?
Lisa DiFrancesco
02:16:01
Thank you that's what I wondering if it was important !
Sharmia
02:16:19
what if you only take a part of the money the child received from SSI for monthly expenses how to report the amount?
janet williams
02:18:12
Where do we get the accommodation form?
Nora Schwartz-Martin
02:20:47
Do you need to submit the 696 form first ? Before filling out application
Dee
02:21:52
If your adult child can only work a few hours a day,does a job that is paid under the table totalling less that $100 per week, should that be reported or ask them to make the pay legal?
Patricia Prior
