Yea yea i know a lot of you don't believe in it. But anyways, what do you think it should be spent on? My son get Medicaid through ssi. So his medical is covered. I spent about $400 today on bills. The other $200 I will be spending on school supplies and clothes for both of my kids and filling my car up.

It vary month to month what I spend it on. Bills always get paid first .


Edit.
For all of you calling me a bitch and a pos have fun arguing with yourself. It is obvious that you can't talk like an adults because you act like teenagers. I will ignore you and report you

I spend my son's on anything he needs including shelter, clothes, school supplies and bills.

It supplements your income since you can't work as much as you want/make as much as you want due to your child's disability. It can be spent on anything your child needs.

I don't work not because of daycare issues but because of the number of doctor appointments and meetings and calls to my son school . His medical is covered through Medicaid that he gets because of ssi.

My sister just had a two pound baby that qualifies for ssi. It will help her be able to stay home with him for longer than she originally planned since he will need extra care.

It should be spent on necessities. Food, clothes, school supplies, bills. I think you are doing just fine.

IMO it should be treated the same way as child support. Spending it on the bills, rent, food & gas in your car so you can work is fine. Those are your son's needs.
