  • Our family gets SSI for our disabled son. Anytime we make more than $2,000 per month, they cut the check by a certain amount. You need to contact the SSI office your area, because the amount people get is different in each state. Good luck!

  • I don't think it matters for a disabled child. Adults are allowed 2,500 a month total in 2 accounts, one car and one house.

  • I don't know as much about the salary limit, but I know the asset limit is 2K. They don't count one vehicle towards that amount, but if you have 2 cars and the other is worth at or more than 2K then you won't qualify. Also, if you have any savings, investments or other accounts it is counted towards that 2K limit.

  • I would talk to the social security board to find out what their limits are.

  • SSI income limits, while set by federal law, are adjusted based on the cost of living in your state, so your best bet would be to contact your local SS office.
