I collect two checks a month, one from SSDI and one from SSI. I just won $1000 from a radio station contest, will this affect my payments or do I just need to report it.
It will likely cause you to lose that SSI check for the month, however, you are obligated to report the income.

I agree with Mr. Pont. SSI is welfare. So, any other income or resource will reduce it.
