The stress from this situation balancing a family of 4 with a disability income and 2 social security benefits was overwhelming as I struggled to maintain our home and payoff bills. In 2010 I developed Colon Cancer and now we have 3 medically disabled adults and a 24 year old college grad who is unemployed.
My younger sister retired in 2010 and took in my disabled mom. So now we have a household with 2 medically disabled adults on SSI and a 25 year old working part time as she struggles to find work in her field of Print Journalism (She has no medical benefits).
Thanks to SSI we are struggling but able to keep food on the table and roof over our heads. We could not survive if there are cuts in Social Security Benefits.
