Disability income and paying for housing
Jul 5, 2001

Greetings,

If a person is on either short term or permanemt disabilty, and they own there own home (house, co-op or condo), how does one take care of the mortage and maintenace payments. Can somone lose there home?

Regards, Bklyn NY

Response from Ms. Breuer

Dear Bklyn NY,

For someone living on disability income, budgeting for housing remains a responsibility of managing that income. Yes, a person on disability income who does not keep up that obligation could lose a home. But there are steps you can take now to prevent that. Please seek the advice of a benefits counselor at your local AIDS service organization now. There's far less the counselor can do if you wait until you're in trouble on the payments. Thanks for your good question, and good luck.
