So I am having a phone interview with SSI this afternoon. For some reason I am very nervous about it. I just don't know what to expect. All the paperwork was submited online.<br><br>
Keep your fingers crossed.

I did my interview for both kids in person, and the interviewer was so nice and it was totally painless. It'll be fine. Good luck. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I was suprised how strict the financial requirements are though, as a family of 4 making less then 200% FPV we would have been turned down automatically if I hadn't been applying for both kids.

I had the phone interview recently. She just went over basics.<br>
She didn't say how long it would be before I would be notified whether he's accepted or not. Didn't say how much the payment would be. Didn't tell me the financial requirements, either. She was quite pleasant though.<br><br>
How did yours go?

How did it go?<br><br>
Does anyone have a spend-down? I think we MAY qualify with a spend down. We need to. Our med bills are topping out at $40K a year AFTER private health insurance.

How did the interview go? When DS got SSI, I never even walked into the local Social Security office. I did everything by phone/mail/Internet. It was more convenient for me.

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> The interview lasted 35 minutes and then she said, we don't qualify because my husband makes too much money. I am so pissed! I hate this. We are caught in the middle. My husband makes too much money, yet we struggle to pay all our bills and medical bills. Like last week I paid over $1400 in medical bills. And we aren't caught up. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

We are in the same boat. They need to take into consideration outgoing expenses compared to incoming expenses. I think that some states do....does anyone know?? Maybe I need to move to that state<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">! LOL!
