I am 70 years old. I receive Social Security Retirement on my ex husband's SS#, and SSI on my own ($237) I also receive food stamps and Medicaid. I am aware that if I lose my SSI, I also lose my Snap benefits. I will only lose $237 per month, and I believe I then could get my SSI and foodstamps back. Am I right, or does the rule about spending down by the end of the month in which you receive the inheritence prohibit this? It would not be a huge loss for a few months because I would have enough money, and am considering prepaying for care such as chiropractic, accupuncture, buying a laptop, a car, etc.(I know the car couldn't be too new, lol! I am exhaused from researching all this stuff! I am also on Sectin 8...about to be evicted (probably in 3-4 months) due to landlady wanting to renovate and raise the rent beyond Section 8 standards....and there is absolutely any housing rentals cheap enough any where near me, (or elsewhere for that matter) so I live in fear of homelessness. I need some good guidance.
