Hopefully I'm going to be going on SSI/SSDI by the end of the year,

So with SSI you're only supposed to have $2000 in assets or your benefits stop. Now the SSA can only monitor what you have in the bank, so if you never mention it is there anything stopping you from saving cash in a safe at home that the SSA doesn't know about? It seems logical that you could do this and I've checked a few other sources online that have mentioned doing this, but I'm curious what /law/'s opinion and experience is.

On a side note I think it is really idiotic that you can't save money on SSI. So... apparently the SSA deems that if you can save beyond a certain amount, you don't deserve disability because you're doing well enough?

Yeah, asking how to defraud the government isn't really going to get you good answers.

Right... sorry... it's just a frustrating thing.

From what I understand the resource limit that contributes to the $2000 excludes things that are personal effects and things that can not actually be sold.

I guess I could just force myself to spend the extra cash on things like amazon credit since that's something I can not sell for cash and probably silver, gold, or platinum coins since those could conceivably fall under personal effects.

I just need a way to save resources for a rainy day or emergencies beyond the $2000 limit.
