Has anyone had any experience with a loved one getting SSI for either or both? I've been urging my son to look into it as he seems to have greater periods of unemployment than employment. So far he's refusing because he says it doesn't pay enough to live on. But he's had virtually zero income for the past several months and I would think $750 is better than $0 any day. Sad thing is, he got Medicaid and food stamps when he lost his job with Chase but then they got taken away when he got another job. His current cycle is getting a job and losing or quitting it within a week or two then finding another one and doing the same thing. Apparently he's not been out of work long enough to qualify for benefits but long enough to not have enough money to live on...he'll get one paycheck from Job A then three or four weeks later one paycheck from Job B, and so on. And I seriously doubt he's budgeting what money does come his way in any significant manner.
