Is your son on SSI or regular disability?
If your son is on SSI and is selling his house, then he will have to spend those assets down. He cannot give the proceeds to you in order to continue benefits.
i am not quite sure but i believe it is regular disability what is the difference
If he's on regular disability then he can have an unlimited amount of assets. It will not go against him. It's only if he's drawing a low income benefit that he is penalized for selling assets.
If he's on SSDI, he can sell the house, keep the proceeds and continue receiving the benefit
how can you tell the difference
Your son should know. SSI is typically a small benefit. Also, if your son has more than $2,000 in assets (excluding house and one car) then he would not be eligible for SSI in the first place.
i need to call him and ask him i know he only gets one check each month
Did he work?
Did he used to work? Or has he always been disabled?
i would like to know if i have joined and have to pay something very month
