Why Are Some People’s Social Security Benefits Disappearing?

A company was managing around $51,000 worth of Social Security funds for a woman with mental disabilities. Then the company suddenly closed, and now this woman’s caretakers are frantically searching for her now missing money. Can the money be found? Was this company a scam? Were there other victims?

Why Are Some People’s Social Security Benefits Disappearing?

The company—Crossroads, Inc.—helped manage the Social Security funds of beneficiaries who don’t have the ability to manage their benefits themselves. This business had a direct line to the Social Security Administration, but as of late June, that line seems to be dead.

If you go to the front door of the Crossroads, Inc. office, you’ll find a sign that says “closed.” It also directs people to go to the Social Security office on West Cary Street in Richmond, Virginia if they are looking for their benefits check. The only problem is that the office only has beneficiaries’ most recent check.

All back funds that were being managed by Crossroads, Inc. have disappeared without a trace. This development has caused hundreds of people to descend on the Social Security office on W. Cary Street. They want their benefits check for July, and answers about the company that used to manage their funds. However, officials have no answers.

Is There Anything The Social Security Administration Can Do?

The account Social Security used to deliver funds to the company has been closed, and nobody related to the company has answered their phones in weeks. The police have opened an investigation, while victims wait for answers. Many fear that the money could be gone for good.

The woman who’s missing $51,000 in benefits has a caretaker who has taken up her cause. But many people who relied on Crossroads don’t have that protection. Your Tulsa disability attorneys want to remind you to take extra precautions when handling your loved one’s benefits. This incident may have happened in Virginia, but it could just as easily happen here in Oklahoma.

    I didn't think there was a caring professional considerate attorney firm on the planet, but Troutman & Troutman proved me wrong. From the receptionist to the legal assistance to the attorney and more they were exceptional people.

    They did a fantastic job getting everything gathered up and getting the trial done as quickly as possible. Anytime I had a question they were patient and help me understand what was going on. Especially Christy and Charlie were great.

    Steve Troutman was able to get my short-term and long-term disability for me. Then Erin another lawyer for their firm got my Social security disability for me. Great people.

    Mr. Troutman walked me through the entire process. Heather was available each time I called, answered all my crazy questions, and helped me fill out forms along the way. I was never treated like I was wasting time.

    Erin and Keith were fabulous! They were compassionate, helpful, and very responsive! They made the process very smooth and painless every step of the way.
