Hello

It depends on what type of disability from SS you are receiving.

One disability program is SSDI and the other is SSI (Supplemental Security Insurance). To be eligible for SSDI, an employee has to pay FICA taxes into the Social Security system for many years. Again, for the SSDI program, there is no limit to the amount of assets, cash, or resources you own. In addition, there's no limit to the amount of income you or your spouse makes.

The value of your resources is one of the factors that determine whether you are eligible for SSI benefits. If the value of your resources that they count is over the allowable limit at the beginning of the month, you cannot receive SSI for that month (less than $2,000 would be the limit).

You are required to rate in a positive way (look for the STARS or SMILEY FACES) if I am to be credited with responding.
