Some people claim you can get up to $3500 a month. I think that bs.
The poll will be private.
I think it's not business to tell
From what I hear, it's depend on individual and condition. Like child without mother or father, get increase. Parents-less get more. Also, it's depend on regional when they see cost of living, give the minimum
Thanx for the link FF.
I kept the poll private so no one knows who is on SSI or what they receive.
I started this thread cuz of all the misinformation on the other ssi thread about disabled people collecting thousands of dollars a month. Its simply not true.
Exactly - You *can.*
Just not directly from the SSI checks.
And there's no misinformation.
explain how one can collect thousands of dollars in benefits? And even so, would you give up your eyesight to sit on your ass and collect 4k a month?:roll:
I would believe limited number of people who gets nice and fat SSA checks. There have to have several factors involved, Blindness do get extra income on top of other purpose income. I have seen over $2k a month, but not yet 3K a month so the chances are probably there is one.
Me? zero from Uncle Sam, I got better source of income.
I didn't have to give up my eyesight to draw $3500 a month.
I can see how... and I know people who did this in Canada, and I am not even going to disclose how because the government spent a lot of money on cracking down on those people-- we don't need more people taking advantage of the loopholes.
canada and america is different
Yeah, it is... after 1994, those loopholes got closed off. How? They kicked off anyone who could do anything as menial as sweeping the floor off of it-- so if you're unemployed due to discrimination-- tough luck; the people who took advantage of the system ruined it for everyone. This doesn't apply to everywhere in Canada... only under those under the ex-premier Ralphie.
I don't think it's right to ask for people SSA amounts whether they get it in SSI or SSD form. I don't care if you say poll is private, but I can see the results of which category they are in. All I see if that you want to know the amounts for personal gain - hence the reason you may get burned about it 3 times.
I am just saying....
First off, the question itself is rude and too personal to be asking on a public forum. Secondly, cash benefits in the form of a check are not the only benefits available through SSI. Tuition costs, job training costs, accommodation costs, etc. that are paid for a recipient are also considered to be benefits and are included in amounts received.
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.
thank you jillio!
Don't forget to add food stamps and paid cell phone bills.
Why you need to know how much is SSI amount every months?? It's private personal. I don't share with you how much I receive my SSDAC. It's my private. AD don't need to know. :roll: Why you're nosy on everyone's SSI, SSD, SSDAC, SSDI's amount?? None of your business!
I'm not ashamed. We get about $600 a month. That covers her speech therapy, batteries, and gas to get to school and appointments (audiologist is 2 hours away).
Just don't go off saying the question is rude. It's perfectly normal amongst the Deaf people to be asking/asked blunt questions, or make bold statements.
Are you hearing?? Do you have SSI? or SSD? I thought it's for deaf, hoh and disabilities only.
