So in my city #SSI pays $771 a month.
I was just informed that I don't qualify because although I make below the poverty level in annual income, that income makes me ineligible.

The SSI person was very nice as I coughed through our conversation, but it's over.

How is anyone supposed to live on this amount of money in a big city? It's beyond belief. Who sets these income levels? Where are #disabled people supposed to live? How are they supposed pay for a phone? Even a burner costs $25 a month. What about utilities?
The insanity is, I just qualified for #SNAP because I live below the poverty level, but that "entitlement" as the #SSI person explained, counts against your income limit. The woman was very nice & commiserative, but she closed out my file. My application for #Medicaid is pending.

@DHSgov has proposed significant changes to public charge determination policies that would affect the immigration status of certain individuals. The concept of determining an immigrant a public charge has been a provision in US immigration policies since the late 1800s. 2/15
Currently, individuals can be prevented from entering the US or denied lawful permanent residence if they are determined to be a “public charge” based on their enrollment in cash assistance programs, like #TANF, #SSI, or if they need long-term care funded by the government. 3/15
