Disability Benefits

Will My Sister Lose Her Benefits If She Sells Her Home And Buys Another House?

My sister is on SSDI and AHCCCS if she sells her home and buys another house with me will she lose her benefits?

Hi,

I'm only able to answer questions about Social Security benefits. I have no idea what AHCCCS is, but selling and/or buying a home would have no impact on a person's Social Security disability (SSDI) benefits.

Do I Need To Report To Social Security If I'm On Social Security Disability And I Do Self-Employment Work From Home?

Hi Larry, I'm on social security disability and I was just wondering that if I do a work from home self employment , like on a website selling digital art that I make but I don't make any earnings, do I still need to report it to s.s or do I report it if I make a sale? Because its not a hourly or salary based its a purchase based I guess.
Thank you

Hi,

I'm not sure I follow you. You can't qualify for Social Security retirement benefits prior to age 62, even if you're disabled. Also, if you're already collecting Social Security disability benefits (SSDI), you could never collect both SSDI and Social Security retirement benefits at the same time.

Can A Person Collecting Disabled Adult Child's Benefits Have A Life Insurance Policy?

Can a Disabled Adult Child collecting SS have a life insurance policy in their name. And does SSA need to be notified?

Hi,

The answer to your first question is yes, and the answer to your second question is no. Social Security disabled adult child (DAC) benefits are not a needs based benefit, so it doesn't matter what type of assets a person receiving DAC benefits owns. Therefore, Social Security wouldn't need to know if a person drawing DAC benefits has a life insurance policy.
