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.
