SSDI is based on a person's disability, not on their resources. So if the recipient comes into an inheritance, it won't affect their benefits. SS is not affected by resources either.

.

However, Medicaid is resource based, so it could reduce or terminate any Medicaid benefits until the money was spent down. Medicaid also has a rule that a recipient has to report any changes in their resources within 10 days following the end of the month that someone receives benefits.
