I want to apply for ssdi - can you have money in Roth IRA?

Asked over 4 years ago - Saint Petersburg, FL

I am 61-3/4 yo collecting short term disabiliy insurance which is about to run out. Trying to decide what direction to go in. Will the money in my Roth IRA make me ineligible for SSDI.

    Answered . SSDI does not depend on how little you have in assets. An IRA will not affect your eligibility for SSDI. Good luck.
