If I'm on SSDI and SSI and I win $1000, will it affect my payments or do I just need to report it?

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

It will likely cause you to lose that SSI check for the month, however, you are obligated to report the income.
