    Default Selling Property While Receiving Social Security Disability Benefits

    My question involves a person located in the state of: Texas

    I want to move my dad from Texas to Idaho. He has property to sell and is hoping to get $40,000 for it. All of the funds would go towards the purchase of property in Idaho. He has SSDI and Medicare. Would he lose his SSDI if he sold his property, moved to Idaho, and bought property in Idaho?

    Thank you for your time.

    Probably not. SSDI has to do with a disability preventing one from earning an income.

    I suggest you both go to the following link and read up on SSDI:

    https://www.ssa.gov/disability/

    Call the SSA office if you have questions.

    No. SSDI has nothing to do with property. It matters only that he worked a sufficient amount in his life to qualify for the benefit and that he has become (and remains) disabled. Same thing for medicare (I'm presuming he's under 65 and hence using the disability to qualify for medicare early).

    SSDI and Medicare are have nothing to do with income and resources. SSI and Medicaid involve income and resources.
