IMMEDIATE ATTENTION and EXECUTIVE AUTHORIZATION IS REQUESTED PURPOSE: AID FOR ALL AMERICANS (WHO HAVE WORKED: DISABLED AMERICANS & SENIORS) TO REMAIN HOUSED IN THEIR OWN HOMES, RETAIN THEIR LIFE, and PROFESSIONAL POSSESSIONS, and DIGNITY. GOAL: PREVENT and/or CURE HOMELESSNESS and THE THREAT OF HOMELESSNESS. For years now I've been enthralled in obtaining the Social Security Benefits/Entitlements that I worked for until I was injured. Through Appeal after Appeal, and application to The USDC , and upon receiving a favorable decision through the Appeals process, The SSA finally stipulated (which the USDC, So Ordered) to immediately remit payment inclusive of retroactive monies, To-date, The SSA hasn't honored the So Ordered Stipulation/Agreement. Instead The SSA has remitted a paltry sum through SSI... The amount of monies The SSA pays isn't enough to cover the rent in affordable/low income housing: HPD/the PHA haven't issued rental subsidies: Therefore, the minimum Social Security entitlement/benefit payment should be raised to commensurate with the the costs of affordable/low income housing. The cost of affordable/low income housing is approximately, $975.00, p/m for a studio, and $1,175.00, p/m for a one bedroom apartment (this amount can be adjusted on an as needed basis so that the recipients receives the higher/maximum amounts). The minimum combined/singular SSA/SSI payment per individual should be approximately, $1,250.00, p/m, if the recipients have no other source of income (SSA payments shouldn't be counted as income unless the recipient(s) are receiving additional income, and the combined/total incomes is/exceeds, $1,500 p/m.) This would permit those who have worked and payed into the system to pay the affordable/low income rent: Otherwise affordable housing/low income housing isn't affordable or low income, and the corporations/entities/persons, that engaged in affordable/low income housing rentals, and sales are receiving tax credits for something that doesn't exist. COLA's (Cost of Living Allowances) should reflect/keep up with today's housing market rates, and up/down adjustments may be made for affordable/low income housing, and subsidy considerations. Therefore, the minimum Social Security entitlement/benefit payment should be raised to, $1,250.00 p/m, this amount should be adjusted up or down depending on individual/family needs i.e., medical, rent, etc. Recipients should receive an amount sufficient enough to pay the rent, and/or a rent subsidy should immediately issue to accompany existing benefit/entitlement payments to ensure the American Citizens are able to retain/obtain the basic needs of life, HOUSING, etc.AND,that property owners will be able to maintain their property and continue to offer affordable housing that everyone have worked for, and paid for through tax and other considerations so that the obligation/purpose for which the Social Security Administration was created is fulfilled for all Americans.
