Ask a Social Security Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
I realize you have a question about social security. My goal is to help you better understand your options.
How are you?
If the person receiving SSI benefits does not already have a vehicle, then the asset would be exempt. He could inherit the car without jeopardizing his benefits, but then in the month he sold the car he would not be able to draw benefits - he could not draw benefits until his assets were spent back down below the $2,000 limit
IF he already has a car, then the month he receives the car he would not be able to draw benefits
And he could not until he sold the car and spent the funds down. He could spend it on property taxes and home repairs - that would be acceptable
But there's going to be at least 1 month where he doesn't draw benefits
Do you have any further questions?
If not, please respond and let me know if I have provided you with excellent service today
