Hi. My name's Lane. I can help with SSI and SSDI issues.

...

Yes, as long as she is the deed-holder (on the title). If you are an OWNER, then she cannot.

...

And if you are on SSI (as opposed to SSDI), this won't affect your benefit UNLESS she gives some of the proceeds to you.

...

Have I underrstood you question correctly?

...

et me know... I'll be here

By the way, if you ARE a part owner, then (1) she DOES have to have your permission to sell and (2) this would affect benefits unless reinvested in a other home for you within the same month.

...

And again, this is all about SSI. (Supplemental Security Income) ... SSDI (Social Security Diability Insurance) is not means tested, so NONE of this would affect benefits.

...

Please let me knownif you have more questions
