SSDI is not "means tested" which means your financial status does not affect your SSDI benefits.

The only restriction is on your earned income, as you probably know.

So there's no problem with your son paying 1/2 your Utilities or anything else or there's no restriction on any other financial arrangement you make with him or anyone else.

Please remember to rate my response as that is the only way the SITE will credit me for assisting you today.

Thanks very much,

Steve G.
