Hi Eddie, thanks for your questions.
1) You can search to find a doctor who takes medicare nearest you
2) ADHD has severe requirements to be covered by social security, but do not let that discourage you. Research, document, and call SSA at 1-800-772-1213 if you have any further questions.
3) You may be eligible for food stamps depending how serious and disabling your condition is.
4) Hope this helps!

Hi Denise,
You may be able to depending on the SSA's definition of your disability and if you're able to stay within any income limitations that your benefits may have.

Hi Chris,
SSI is for people who haven't worked (or kids) but who are very needy. SSDI is only for people who worked and paid taxes. You can still earn some income while on SSDI benefits, but less than $1,130 per month.

I had a question if you are on SSI how many hours within the month are you allowed to work to keep your Social Security benefits

Hi Robert,
Income, not hours is what counts. You cannot earn more than $1,170 per month while qualifying. Every dollar you earn will reduce your SSI payment by 50 cents.

Hello Bryan and Veronica. If the SSI monthly payment benefits are $733, then can you make anything on top of that to supplement the income? $733 isn't much to live on? So can you make up to and match your benefit amount? So total monthly gross would be $1466?

Hi Christopher,
There really isn't a limit, but the SSA will reduce benefits one dollar for every two that you earn.

Thank you Bryan. So if I understand correctly, if an individual is on SSI and getting $733/Month, then they can't make any supplemental income above $733 or the $733 is reduced? So in essence on SSI you can only get $733/month, No Supplemental is allowed?
