Hi.

...

Can you clarify one piece of this for me?

...

Are you on SSDI or SSI.

....

SSDI is Social Security Disability (eligibiity for this comes from (1) being disabled and (2) hacing worked in the system long enough to be "insured under the system.")

...

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a Federal income supplement program funded by general tax revenues (not Social Security taxes):

...

It is designed to help aged, blind, and disabled people, who have little or no income; and

It provides cash to meet basic needs for food, clothing, and shelter.

...

If you are on SSDI, (not a means tested benefit), then this is fine as long as you don not generate more than 1130 in cineom per month.

...

If you are on SSI, the the income generated may reduce your SSI dollar for dollar

...

let me know and we can go from there
