Hello,Thank you for your question. My name isXXXXX am a New York licensed attorney and I will do whatever I can to answer your questions! Stocks, annuities and your wife's settlement will not affect your SSDI. SSDI benefits are not need-based. SSDI benefits are paid because you have worked long enough to be qualified under the Social Security guidelines before you became disabled and unable to work. SSDI is not dependent upon your financial conditionPlease let me know if you need any clarification. I would be glad to assist you further if I can
Thank you. If we were to invest some of the settlement money, and earned a profit from the investment, would that then affect my ssdi.
