My mother is leaving a "Special Needs Trust" when she dies. A lawyer told her that it will not affect my benefits. Was she given correct information. As long as I do not use that money for food or housing I will be obeying the rules correct?

If you are a Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) recipient and receive an inheritance, it will not affect your benefits. SSDI is not a needs-based program and is not contingent upon your unearned income—including inheritance.
