Hi. I am on SSI. I sold my car for $600. I read something on the social security website that says if you sell a resource for less than market value that you lose your SSI for up to 36 months. I don't know for sure what the market value of the car was, but the transmission was going out in it and it was losing oil somewhere, so I needed to get rid of it. Plus, I was about to be jailed for six months if I didn't pay $540 in child support arrears. I have been having a lot of financial problems. Would I lose my SSI? I have no other way to pay rent. Almost all of the money already went to the government.
