I feel like such a derelict!

No Blitzo, you are not. Many if not most of us are falling on hard times.

We all have to stick together as a community.

I swear on my mother's grave, if I ever, ever win or make a fortune (let's not hold our breaths), the Taco Standers that need assistance will be the first to benefit.

I don't know why it got deleted. I think because I would lose my medical coverage if I got over $900.00 a month. I emailed Locker, but haven't heard back.
It would be nice to sell some prints though.

Blitzo, I'm no expert but I don't think you need report gifts as income.
Furthermore, I would put the gifts in a separate bank account that only you
and your closest 500 friends know about.

That is correct, "true gifts" don't need to be reported as income. I believe there is some upper limit though (maybe $100,000?) but I'm not sure on that.

You're allowed $14K per year tax free as 'gifts'. I hope Blitzo has to
worry about exceeding that. If so let me know and I'll hook you up with my accountant.

Not true when concerning some of the programs to help the poor. This only applies to federal tax on income. Not for many of the help programs for the poor.

Which program are you on Blitzo? The article below is for Social security disability and SSI. Everything depends on which program that you are getting help from. They can get your bank records. One work around is to have the money go into someone elses bank account and then use it to pay the auto insurance. Don't put Blitzo's name on the checks.. or paypal.

What If You Receive Property or Income After You Apply for Social Security Disability?
Receiving assets can disqualify you from SSI but not Social Security Disability (SSD).


The answer to this question depends upon which disability program you are applying for. The Social Security Administration (SSA) manages two disability programs with their own rules of eligibility. Most individuals who apply for disability benefits through the SSA will be evaluated for both Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) eligibility.
Social Security Disability
Social Security Disability (SSD) is based upon an individual's work activity. Individuals who have worked enough to be insured for their age (the number of quarters it takes to be insured depend upon an individual's age) will receive a disability benefit if they are found to be medically disabled. Owning or receiving property does not prohibit an individual from winning Social Security disability benefits, because the SSD program has no resource limits. Nor does SSD have a limit to the amount of unearned income you have, such as money from investments, interests, cash gifts, or inheritance. So if you receive any of these items after you apply, your eligibility won't be affected. (However, if you go back to work after you apply and earn over $1,040 per month, you won't be considered disabled unless you are in a trial work program.)
Supplemental Security Income
The second disability program administered by the Social Security is SSI. Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a need-based program that is designed to help individuals who have not worked, not worked much, or not worked recently, if the individual meets income and resource limits. Each year Social Security establishes income and resource limits for this program. Since the resource limit is currently $2,000, property ownership may prevent you from receiving SSI. However, the land that you live on and your house and your most valuable vehicle are excluded from the limit. Resources that count toward the limit are bank accounts, cash gifts, retirement plans, stocks, bonds, inheritances, jewelry (except a wedding and engagement ring), and household goods and personal effects over $2,000.
If your property is clearly over the SSI resource limit when you apply for SSI at the Social Security office, you will most likely be denied when you complete your initial disability interview (unless you qualify for SSD). If your income and property are under the resource limit, your claim will be sent to Disability Determination Services (DDS) to evaluate your disability. After DDS says whether you are disabled or not, your claim will be sent back to your local Social Security office for an end-line review to determine if you still meet the income and resource limits of the SSI program. So even if you are approved, you could still receive a denial because of too many resources/assets at an end-line SSI review if your financial circumstances have changed.
You are required to tell the SSA if your financial information changes after you apply. For instance, if, after you apply, you receive some unexpected income, such as child support, or you receive property, you have to tell the SSA. Failing to tell the SSA of changes in your finances, even after you start to receive benefits, can result in your having to pay back overpayments, and possibly be charged with penalties and fraud.


Locker must have run into the OOPS.. "I didn't talk to the recipient about what he needs" problem.

Steve, did you miss the "Locker answer your phone" thread?

To Re-Cap (Pun Intended) he can't when he is recapping in the garage with his glue and his rubbers. Something about time sensitive materials or some such nonsense.

Locker, I understand the deletion of the thread. Perhaps I should not have brought it up, but then, I show a lack of good sense many times.

Philo, jaysus, S&H Greenstamps, are those still around? Or am I showing my age?
