The majority of SSI recipients do not abuse the system. They use it as intended: to be an assistance in a time of need that allows them to become self sufficient.
I'm doing exactly that. I applied so that I could get the medical help and money to go back to school, which I am starting in January.

I would rather work cause I can work, everything works on me except my ears.

Well, I have ssid for about 500.00 a month after my children are outgrown (23ish & up). But my hearing husband works for ATT (phone co) for 32 yrs. SSI knows how much he makes so i end up gettting 500.00. If I work so i figure that i may earn about the same amount a month if part time job as well i will lose SSID. I'm from CA. I wish i can get like 2000.00! but i know it is impossible! or no way for me get those. i was told by Social Security office that I can't because how much he makes a month. We are little middle class as average.

I should quit my job and collect SSDI so I can have more quality time with my family.

I hope not!! For a teacher to feel they can do their job, they have to be dedicated and you can't find a more dedicated bunch of people than teachers. Thay have to put up with what the child's own family won't or can't.

What I mean is that with the CI movement, there is more pressure to put deaf children in oral only educational settings which can put deaf teachers out of jobs in the near future unless they have CIs or are oral themselves. Yes, I have good oral skills but I have no interest in oral-only deaf ed because of what it represents.

I have to tell you my personal SSI. My personal SSI income is the highest of all. I earn $0.00 every month, because I work.

I get paid 4x more than SSI.

In NZ I used to get about $1,000 NZD for per month (but get SSI $$ per week about $250 per week in New Zealand) and add in extra $$$ from two part time jobs.

Ofc it not enough for high living costs in Auckland, NZ.

Currently I'm not on any SSI, so I am working part time and studying part time in Australia.

Let's hope not. I know it is tough though. I have seen the stats for Deaf unemployment and it is really sad.

I think even with a CI, it would be extremely difficult for a deaf/severe hoh teacher to manage a K-12 classroom that wasn't composed of deaf/hoh individuals. College profs are a different story.

I collected SSA for 18 years not SSI nor SSDI. I worked short time and got pregnant so I stayed home and collected SSA. I was not qualied for SSI because of own home and I was not qualified for SSDI because I did not work long enough. Now I am off SSA for almost 5 years yeahhhhhh I am freeeeee and feel great. I had to pay big fine for medicare for many years, they took alike $200 out of SSA because I did not want medicare in first place when I first got SSA. Hope I will never go back on SSA till I reach 65.

i get $694/month plus health "benefits". the health care sucks though. like...bad. BUT... i'm grateful that I at least HAVE health care. A lot of Americans don't so im lucky.
Also, they wont let me work without putting my SSI/SSD on the line. I don't understand how they expect anyone to live off of under $700/mn but I feel like i shouldnt complain since a lot of people have it worse than me right now :/

Me too, can't image less than $1k a month. I think 1200 a month is good minimum for comfortable living.

If you start getting access to Medicare then your income automatically drops, is that correct?

Yeah - if I take straight Medicare, Part A is no cost, Part B is $110.80 and the prescription Part D is a different amount depending on which plan you get. I can opt to not take Part B and go with a different plan which will cost more. They take the cost out of the check automatically.

oh... the people who feel that way should be understanding of people who chose NOT to get CI. it is a personal choice.

they automaticly put me on part B. IDK how, maybe my payee did it but the pay cut was like a stab in the chest. It's so hard to survive off the scraps they give. With state care, i didn't have to pay anything at all. Now because i've been on SSD "long enough" they start making me pay for the same exact coverage i got from the state! it's so dumb
