A person on disability will receive $10,000 from a stepmother as per the deceased father's request. Will this have any impact on disability payments?

Thank you for your question. My name is Ellen. I will do whatever I can to answer your questions!

Do you know whether the person is receiving SSI or SSDI benefits?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Social Security disability.

Hello Joyce,

Thank you for the clarification

Social Security disability benefits would not be affected in any way by the receipt of the $10,000 gift.

Social Security disability is not need-based. A person receives SSDI, because he has worked and then became disabled. The inheritance would have no effect on the receipt of continued benefits

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I would be glad to assist you further if I can
