Support the SSI Restoration Act in the US House of Representatives (HR-3763)- It would increase the general income disregard to $123 a month, the earned income disregard to $399 and increase the asset limits to $10,000 an individual and $20,000 a couple for SSI recipients. It would also make it easier for SSI recipients to marry. We could use a improvement in our lives.
So it just needs 50% approval in the house and senate?
I think it would need majority approval in the House and probably 50% approval in the Senate (a majority if the Vice President doesn’t approve as she would be the tie-breaking vote.)
I’m not sure it’s true anymore that extended families filled in the gaps, or the cracks in the system.
I know for me, I could never live with my mom and step-dad, no way in hell, maybe my daughter, but wouldn’t want to burden her.
I wouldn’t count on it. We’ll see what happens. I know we are in for a good cost of living adjustment in 2022.
I’m not on food stamps, EBT, are you?
inflation is rising. wanted to get fresh fruit this summer, you gotta be kidding me what they’re charging.
I feel sorry for those of you in the US who aren’t from wealthy families.
