Customer Question

My name is ************ and my social security number is **********. My email address is: **********. I have a question regarding SSI-D and federal grants. Will I lose my SSI-D if I do get a federal grant and would I have to pay taxes on a federal grant if I get one? Two friends of mine want me to apply for a federal grant but I'm afraid of losing my disability check.

The answer to both questions is no. Federal Grants are not considered income by Social Security Administration and IRS. For more information, click on the links below:
