I get SSDI, rental property income, and investment income. And these are enough for me to live on. I am very blessed by my H.P.
Im on cpp disability (government) and insurance from where I worked previously plus i get child tax credit. Just get by
I am supported by my family. Right now I have not been sick enough to get disability but am too sick to hold a job. I just hope I can finish school.
I’m at about the bottom of the welfare payroll. I think I am getting about $720.00 in monthly income from my ssi pay. I also get quite a bit of medical care free. My med’s are free. I also get $134.00 a month in food stamps. I get $52.00 a week to supply my other needs - clothes and whatnot. I’ve noticed that I have more money left over than a lot of people who are getting around $100.00 a week. I think they get substantially fewer food benefits than me. Also, I’ve noticed that these people are willing to pay retail for their clothes. Something has to be on special at a thrift store before I will buy it.
I get SSDI and we get money to pay for rooroo’s insulin , dog food and syringes from Angie’s ex…otherwise Rooroo would probably die…it is hard to get by but we do it on my paycheck alone.
We get by on SSI for hubby and daughter. About $1400 a month for rent and utilities and personal care needs. We get about $350 a month in food stamps for the 7 of us. It’s pretty tight.
I have a job that does not pay enough to live on. I lived with my parents previously and then got married almost five years ago. If I wasn’t married, I could probably rent a room in someone’s house. My husband pays all the major bills.
I get SSI and ssdi and food stamps, but the real life saver is the fact I got a housing choice voucher which covers most of my rent.
My dad and SSI. I’m hoping to someday earn enough to support myself but on the inside I just feel like a failure because by the time I’m thirty I’ll still be living with parents
Same here. I’ll be thirty soon. What a lonely life.
I know it sucks.
My husband gives me half of his salary which pays for my labor, the food, my meds, my insurance. My husband pays all other bills includes electricity, gas, internet and traveling. We own an apartment so we don’t have to pay the rentals.
I get a retirement check from the Marine Corps, a VA disability check, SSDI and I have an investment home I rent out. We are very blessed.
But I just finished 8 months of trial work period and got used to having extra money every month. Got to get back on a budget now.
I’m on SSI, Section 8, and food stamps. I can survive and buy a few trinkets when necessary expenses don’t take precedence.
I’m on SSI and don’t qualify for food stamps. I’m hoping to get an apartment some day.
I get ssdi and ssi not enough to survive on.
I am very lucky where I live I get a government benefit for my illness, and I also hav 9 hours work a week. I am comfortable but wen I move out of home (hopefully soon) things might b tighter
I get $1200 CAD per month, alongside roughly $500 CAD in part time work. So I get roughly $1400 per month which lasts me for my rent, gas, caffeine, nicotine and food.
My husband and I make just under six figures together. I contribute a whopping 15k from my SSDI. We have a joint bank account; we share everything we have. I’m the one who does our financial planning, and I’m good at it. I even account for a certain amount of money to set aside each month for when I go all crazy and start spending money (it happens every time I get manic).
the lottery don’t pay much, you spend it back in a day.
