easy street?? You prolly make more money working the fryer at mcdonalds then most people get from thier disability checks. The system is abused, but for the people that really need it, it is hardly enough to survive on alone.

I agree, but if u can cut 10 loads of logs a week, or haul scrap all day u obviosly don't need disability.

Not talking about those who need it you quack
And and free money is easy street in my book. Especially when you have other income and medicaid

+ shelter workshop?- good for all - everyone needs social life of some kind
mental ?- sure to get picked on first, question is how to tell the need, I knew someone who got a
check by putting "because I'm stupid" under the
reason for applying..........
life is a box of chocolates, assorted fda approved
now for those who are logging, scrapping, or any
other form of income-and drawing a check? shame and
consequences are coming, even the local courthouse
can't save you this time. just one call....

if a person has paid into the s.s. fund for 20-30 years and is suddenly unable to find a job due to age or health issues he is eligible to draw s.s. i.. and since s.s. is completely funded by this person and his fellow workers please explain to all the people how this person is getting free "gov money". i don't see the logic. all i see is a bunch of mean and hateful television brainwashed corporate bank ass lickers. come on and tell us how a social security program funded by the people and paying out to the people is free money. that is if you inbreds can put a paragraph together. coming on here telling complete strangers you hope they starve you must be a christian.

SSI makes monthly payments to people who have low income and few resources and are:
•Age 65 or older;
If there is a change in your income or the income of family members
If you have income other than your SSI, you must tell us about it. And you should tell us if the amount of your other income increases, decreases, or if the income stops. Usually, changes in your income in a month will affect your SSI payment two months later.
You also should tell us about changes in the income of other family members living with you. For example:
•If you are married, tell us about any change in your spouse's income, including any change in the amount of his or her Social Security benefits.(If you also get Social Security benefits, you do not need to tell us when you get a Social Security benefit increase.)
•If you have a child younger than 18 who gets SSI and lives with you, tell us about any change in:
◦The child’s income;
◦Your spouse's income; and
◦Income of any child in your home who is not getting SSI.
Also tell us if:
◦A child in your home who is not getting SSI gets married; or
◦A child who is working or who is age 18 to 22 starts or stops attending school full time.

What we count as income
Under SSI, income includes cash, checks and other things you get that can be used for food or shelter. Here are examples of income:
•Wages from your job, whether in cash or another form;
•Net earnings from your business if you are self-employed;
•The value of food or shelter that someone gives you, or the amount of money some gives you to help pay for them;
•Department of Veterans Affairs benefits;
•Railroad retirement and railroad unemployment benefits;
•Annuities, pensions from any government or private source, workers’ compensation, unemployment insurance benefits, black lung benefits and Social Security benefits;
•Prizes, settlements and awards, including court ordered awards;
•Proceeds of life insurance policies;
•Gifts and contributions;
•Support and alimony payments;
•Inheritances in cash or property;
•Rental income; and
•Strike pay and other benefits from unions
Items that do not count as income
The following items are not income:
•Medical care and services;
•Money from the sale, exchange or replacement of things you own (though the money may count as a resource if you retain it until the next month);
•Most types of interest and dividend income;
•Income tax refunds;
•Earned Income Tax Credit payments;
•Payments made by life or disability insurance on charge accounts or other credit accounts;
•Proceeds of a loan;
•Bills paid by someone else for things other than food, clothing or shelter;
•Settlement payments to eligible American Indian landowners whose assets had been mismanaged by the United States;
•Replacement of lost or stolen income; and
Some things we normally count as “income” will not reduce your SSI payment. For example, under certain conditions, home energy assistance provided by certain home energy suppliers is not counted as income. Food, clothing, shelter or home energy assistance provided free or at a reduced rate by private nonprofit organizations also is not counted. Even though these items may not count, you should still tell us about them.

Reporting your earned income
You must report to us all earned income you receive from wages or self-employment beginning with the date you filed your SSI application.
We will need to verify your wages or self-employment income. It is important that you keep all your pay slips, including pay slips for overtime, vacations or bonuses. You must promptly report any changes in work activity. You must tell us by the 10th of the month after the month of the change when:
•Your work starts or stops;
•Your work hours or rate of pay change; and
•You start paying for expenses that you need for work due to your disability.
You must report your wages by:
•Telephone wage reporting by the 6th of each month. Please contact your local Social Security office to determine if this option will work for you and to receive instructions for how to report wages over the phone.
•Mailing, faxing or bringing your pay slips to your local Social Security office each month as soon as you receive the last pay slips of the month, but no later than the 10th day of the next month.
If you are self-employed, notify us of your self-employment either by phone, mail or in person. We will help you determine your net earnings from self-employment. You must:
•Report to us if a change occurs which could affect the amount of your net earnings from self-employment;
•Maintain business records; and
•Provide us with a copy of your federal income tax return when it becomes available.
You can get more information on reporting earnings by calling us toll-free at 1-800-772-1213 or if you are deaf or hard of hearing, call our toll-free TTY number at 1-800-325-0778, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday through Friday. You can find your local Social Security office on our website at www.socialsecurity.gov .

Rules to help you work and keep your SSI
Tell us right away if you go to work—no matter how little you earn. There are special SSI rules to help you try to work. Your SSI may continue while you work if you are still disabled. As your earnings go up, the amount of your SSI will go down and eventually may stop. Even if your SSI stops, you may be able to keep your Medicaid coverage.(Medicaid coverage may continue if you depend on it to work and do not earn enough to pay for similar medical care.)
Tell us if you have any special work expenses. These include items and services you need to work. Some examples are a wheelchair, attendant care services, Braille devices, certain drugs and medical services. The earnings you use to pay for these expenses do not count as income, so they will not lower the amount of your SSI. You should keep receipts for any work expenses related to your disability.
If you work or would like to work, you may be able to have a plan to achieve self-support. This plan allows you to work towards a career goal and helps you pay for things such as college, vocational training, work-related equipment or starting a business. Having this plan usually means you can keep more of your SSI, because the money you set aside will not lower your SSI amount. As your earnings and resources increase, it becomes more important for you to develop a plan. For more information, ask for Working While Disabled—A Guide To Plans For Achieving Self-Support (Publication No. 05-11017).
