Supplemental Security Income

Can You Offer Any Suggestions?

My son, who has been disabled with severe autism since the age of 3, has been receiving SSI since the age of 18. The monthly SSI payment is far less important than the fact that his receipt of SSI made him eligible for Medicaid, which pays for his participation in a day habilitation program that provides him with a regular schedule of small volunteer job engagements for several hours each day as well as some other classes and activities.

Would My Cousin's Disability Benefits Be Affected By The Sale Of His Home?

A cousin, on SSDisability, owns his house. If he sells that house does it affect his Disability payments?

Hi,

No, assuming that your cousin receives Social Security disability benefits (SSDI). However, if he receives Supplemental Security Income (SSI), then those payments could potentially be terminated as a result of selling a home.

What Is The Effective Date That My SSI Will Start?

I applied for disability in May of 2014. My husband made too much for me to file for SSI. 3 months later his job changed within the company and he began traveling. By April of 2015 he was spending most of the month away from home. Physically I could not handle all of the trips to grocery shop, doctors appts, bill paying and caring for our sons. I was drained and had become very depressed being unable to keep up. Unable to change departments, he quit his job in May and returned to self employment allowing him some of the freedom to care for me/us.

What Do I Need To Do?

Hi,

If you mean that you are receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI), your payments would likely be reduced if you work and earn more than $65 per month. In that case, you should notify Social Security if you do start working.

What's The Most That A Husband On SSDI Could Receive In Order For His Wife To Keep SSI?

What's the amount a husband can make on ssdi in order for his. Wife to keep SSI

Hi,

Assuming they live together, the husband's SSDI would likely need to be under around $1,100+ in order for his wife to potentially still qualify for SSI (Supplemental Security Income). There are many variables involved in determining SSI eligibility and rates, however, so you would need to check with Social Security to be sure.
