I think I will be gone in a little while. Social Security has a 50 min hold time for callbacks. I never seem to get through though. I would like to know if they allow retirement funds at all. I am registering and want to be sure before I do it. Would you know of that? I can't read that site without getting upset There is no way around some of it. Thank you.

SS and SSI and SSD all have different rules. I know the old guy I used to tend, my cousin, got SS and got his retirement from the police force.

@sharon6345 I am not sure. I am thinking you can`t have a bank account with a lot of money. But ask anyways, I am known to not know it all

@andriaperry I am sure of it to a point I think it's $2500 and then you can burry yourself. that is why so many seniors are on the news with their life savings sewn into clothing and furniture.

A 50 minute hold time is outrageous and maybe they should think of hiring more employees so all of us people dont get so frustrated and yell at them when they actually do answer the phone. Sorry about all of that but hopefully you can get your answer you need. Maybe you can also put them on speaker phone and maybe get in some more mylotting (Just an idea)

I am not on bipolar meds and that option is not possible. the music and talking would not be easy to manage. I will wait on the callback. If I am here I will get it. Sometimes the medical taxi arrives too early.

Regular SS isn't affected by retirement accounts. SS Disability might be though. It is best to check it out with the experts. When I retire and hit 62, I will have social security, my pension, and my private retirement accounts.

He was very nice and yes I am allowed to save up now. If it's not earnings it's ok. I also have him adding my mylot earnings as well. so I will be in the office soon to see about it. I broke myself to pay down my debt it's not time to save up. If there is any way possible I would love to see about a condo in the future and if my health allows a job in some decor field. I can only do one thing now and that is my debt and then saving. so that is good. thank you

@db20747 oh yeah I worked and the man said I was able to save since I earned my check on the 3rd. I will be going pretty soon so they will tell me. i am sure the amount won't go up since I been on ssi for a long while. I was trying to go back to work but you know the pain stopped me.
