Dedicated Funds usage

Can I purchase a vehicle with my childs SSI dedicated account funds? I need reliable transportation to make her appointments and operations.

You would need to talk with your local office, but I purchased my son a car with his SSI funds...And I've used them to send him to camp, and purchase school supplies, etc.

It was my understanding that expenditures would not be questioned, as long as it was shown as a need to facilitate something for the child. So, in my opinion, a vehicle to get her to appointments, etc would not be out of line, but I'm also one of those who double checks everything...I've never had to tell them what I spent the money on, nor have I had to keep "official" records and send to them, but I'm still cautious...
