I am a little confused. If you are on Supplemental Security Income and your daughtergets both Supplemental Security Income and SSA, then you get a comined income of $1368 (about). You are getting Food Stamps and should be getting housing (which charges about 1/4 of your income). You can get your medicine and doctor appointments reduced so that you pay about 10%. You could also get a part time job and make a little money that way. If you earned $400 a month, then you would only be reduced by $173. So you could earn $400 and get $501 from SSI. I am assuming that the Supplemental Security Income amount is $674 a month.......If you have more questions, please write......Good Luck......Carol
