with me being 23 years old i'm more than old enough to control my SSI, 
and if anything i already do. the money is put in an account my mom 
controls, and i, not her use it from there on. The rep yesterday didn't 
even look anything up, she was treating me like i knew nothing and kept 
ignoring everything i was saying. The only thing is, now i don't know if 
i can do anything as my mom isn't exactly close to me.
