Will money's from a auto accident claim affect my ssi
1 attorney answer
SSI is a needs based program with a requirement to report financial changes within the household.
You have to report the settlement or risk losing your benefits. You should also consider setting up a pre-settlement trust so your benefits are not affected. Otherwise your benefits will temporarily stop or be reduced while you spend down the settlement proceeds.
