I never knew people were so damn bitchy about kids getting ssi! My kids are 6 and 9 years old and they get ssi because they're mildly autistic. They get medicaid which is great . I haven't worked since they were born and I'm a single mom. I used to get welfare cash but I got off of it once I got approved for the ssi for my kids.

I'm pretty much a typical stay at home mom. I'm there for my kids everyday when they get home from school and I love it. I don't feel bad for not working because I like being home with my kids.

I get $1488 a month ..the rent is $430 a month and includes all utilities because its public housing and its a really nice building for new york city ..very safe and family friendly neighborhood...I love it actually . Our verizon fios bill is $190 a month and my cell phone is $50 a month.

Our foodstamps was cut in half to $230 a month so now I pay an additional $200 cash for groceries ....

I put $100 a month into savings as our emergency fund ...

We don't have or need a car so the rest of the money which is $500 is our vacation money.

I take my kids to disney world or universal studios once a year ..sometimes twice if I can swing a budget trip.

The year before I was able to take them on a 4 night disney cruise.. it was really tight. We couldn't afford excursions or extras but they had such an awesome time . It was around $2100 for the cruise...airfare was $600 but my mom paid for that she also paid for her portion of the cruise.

My mom has terminal cancer so right now the $500 a month is being put away to send her to las vegas which she wants to go to so bad but can't afford it.. I love my mom . My kids know the vacation fund is going toward my mom this year and her trip to vegas for mother's day . They're going too ...I'm trying to save enough for airfare/hotel for all of us. They're really excited for this surprise for my mom and they've been recycling for extra cash .

That's how we spend our money around here. During the months of september and december we don't contribute to the vacation fund at all. September is school clothes/supplies and december is Christmas . They still believe in Santa Clause so I spend $500 on gifts for them....one big present each and a bunch of little presents .

You live comfortably in NYC on a budget of $1400 a month? Ha ha ha. Even if that's possible, you don't want better for your kids than the lowest possible income can provide?

Don't you want more out of life? Don't you want your own home, a future that doesn't include welfare? Something you can be proud of?

YOu need to show receipts for the SSI and if they see you are misusing it or can't provide receipts you will lose  it. YOu areonly allowed to pay for their portion of thestuff not EVERYTHING GL

So, you don't work, live off the government, and can afford to save $500/no for vacations?

And people wonder why others have an issue with the fraud, waste, and abuse of the welfare system.
