I live rent free with my parents who don’t want my disability money so I’ll be getting 700 a month to spend on whatever. I feel like this is too much money. Is anyone else in the same situation as me? My boyfriend pays for my cell phone too and whatever else I want.
It’s going up 6% in January too.
I would save.
I wouldn’t if OP is on ssi.
Even cash they’d be able to figure if your saving probably
I live with my parents now too but I pay for rent, some food and takeout, phone, a streaming service, my doctors and dentist appointments, Amazon prime, my Stash app service and cigarettes for me and mom. I usually still have some left over to save at the end of the month though.
get a hollowed out dictionary that has a lock. Keep some money in there just in case
Don’t you find it suspicious that I have access to so much money?
Not particularly no. Why do you find it suspicious?
I just feel like it’s somehow connected to the North Korea thing.
I really don’t think so flowers20. I get more than you’re getting through SSDI and I have no connection to the North Korea thing.
Do you keep that or does that go into rent?
Some goes to rent. I spend some but I usually have money left over for the month.
You should be happy you are getting the money and not be so suspicious of it’s origins.
How much do you have total after rent?
After rent I have a little over $1000
Okay so you’re sort of like me then.
I get guilt about how much I receive, too. Maybe donate some money to a good charity.
The situation is too good to last forever. Make the most of it. Buy a couple luxuries like a stereo or some nice clothes or headphones or something. It feels great to have money but things come up; it never lasts. Aj dental bill can wipe out your savings in one day. Save some. Get cash and save some for a rainy day.
How much do you pay for doctors and dentists appointments if you don’t mind my asking? Don’t you have insurance?
Why is it too good to last forever?
I have medicare which does not cover dental. It pays for most of my doctors visits and the like but not all of it. I have to pay all dental costs myself. I can’t give you a specific amount because the costs vary depending on what I am having done.
