Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

There is a $2000 limit in savings that you can have under Medi-Cal for a single person and $3000 for a couple. This includes all accounts. Additionally, all property other than the primary residence is considered an asset under Medi-Cal which can lead to elimination of Medi-Cal, but not your disability benefits which are not dependent upon your assets, but your disability.

So, your disability benefits you can have whatever you want in the bank and own as much property as you want, the limits are for receiving Medi-Cal with your disability.
