The folks at SSDI feel that he isn't capable of managing his own money. Well, ok. I wasn't expecting that, but ok. He has made his girlfriend his representative payee. This is not going to turn out well. Remember what happened when I told him that he couldn't stay up all night playing video games and not do his homework? He commandeered my butcher knife and kept it with him after he went to bed for two weeks because he was planning to kill me for telling him to go to bed. Imagine what might happen if she does something he doesn't like with his money! This being the girl that asked us if "M can expect anything from you when you move away", and has plans for husband's mother's house when she can't live there anymore. He's 26 years old, and it's not my business. I told him that he should be sure to have the girlfriend show him what she is doing so that he might be able to figure it out for himself one day.
