Supplemental Security Income

If I Receive A Personal Injury Settlement Can I Suspend My SSI Temporarily?

Hi Larry, I’m 37 years old, divorced female, deemed disabled in 2017 by SSA. I receive SSI and the RI state supplement of approx $40. Anyhow, I will likely be receiving a settlement from a personal injury lawsuit and have been hearing and reading much conflicting advice. Am I able to report the settlement and suspend my SSI payments until the settlement is spent (it likely will be under $70k)? Should I look into setting up a special needs trust for myself? Is that even possible? Any help is appreciated!

Hi,

What Can I Do?

I have a SSD benefit , but I no longer get my retirement benefit from my job. My income is under the limit to go concurrent , but I can't apply for SSI . What can do? It stopped when I turned 65 my retirement also with prosthesis?

Hi,

You say that you can't apply for SSI (Supplemental Security Income), but you have a right to apply for those benefits. I have no idea whether or not you'll qualify for SSI, but the Social Security Administration can't prevent you from applying.

Hi,

For the benefit of other readers, SSI is the abbreviation for Supplemental Security Income. SSI is a needs based program administered by the Social Security Administration, but the benefits aren't paid from the Social Security trust fund. Only people who are either blind, disabled, or age 65 or older can qualify for SSI payments.

Are There Any Laws That Stipulate I Must File For Disabled Adult Child's Benefits If I Receive SSI?

Hi.

My mother has just filed for Social Security. I am living with her, and have been blind since birth. I have now been put on a mandatory child adult disability benefit. I was told if I did not apply, I would be no longer eligible for supplemental security income. Are there any laws that stipulate this in writing? Also, I cannot find anywhere on the Internet that says what the Sga earnings are for someone who is blind, and now is on child adult disability benefits. Thank you very much for your help.

Hi,

Does The Stimulus Check Count For The SSI Resource Limit?

Does the stimulus check amount count for SSI resource limit in the bank account? After receiving the stimulus check I'm over the resource limit in my bank account. Is this a problem or not? Thanks a lot for your attention.

Hi,

Social Security has announced that stimulus payments will be excluded from counting as a resource for purposes of the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program for 12 months (https://www.ssa.gov/coronavirus/).
