I know that if you do inherit property while receiving disability/ssi benefits you will have to hand over those properties to reimburse the govt for ALL medical services/treatment you received. There are ways around it but you definitely need to seek advice from an attorney before they pass on.
I just handled an estate for someone who haad 2 kids on welfare. Here is what you have to do:
You must report it within 30 days of receiving it (not just when you're told that you are getting it)
It must be reported to all agencies who help you.
DO NOT cancel any of your benefits. If you do, you may not get them going so easily when your money runs out.
Probably some of your benefits will be reduced until you have used up your inheiritance. Make sure you get a folder and keep all of your paperwork concerning the inheiritance and communications concerning your benefits in it.
Good luck, but don't be so worried, they won't take it away from you.
Ask a lawyer. My opinion is that if you collected SSI you will have to pay it back. IDK about paying back welfare. Once you have "several paid off properties" you won't qualify for welfare or SSI anymore. They are for broke people. You are no longer broke.
I'm assuming you're an American.
I'd get a lawyer, and check the us.gov website as well.
They may be able to make you pay some things back.
I am on disability. I was in (another) bad car accident while on disability.
The state tried to make me pay what the doctors, and hospital charged me, for my care.
Not what they PAID!
There's was a huge difference between what the state was charged, and what they paid the hospital, and the doctors (good thing I kept all my records/receipts).
I'm so sorry for your loss, and the injury(s) you're suffering from.
no but your benefits may be cancelled if u have income from property and a huge bank account
it is best to consult with attorney to determine your legal rights and try to have will probated soon before new tax laws on death taxes come to fruition
No.you just get cut off welfare while you got money.once you back to broke you get on again.
Personally, I'd be asking the attorney handling the details of the estate.
No. One doesn't have anything to do with the other.
