if you and your child needed a place to live or ac or heat they will allow you just have to let them know it considered emergency funds for the childs best interest.

As an adult I can use my SSI back pay and SSI for whatever I want... as I am using it to live. I know they have different rules for a parent receiving SSI on behalf of a child, but I do not know what those rules are. If you are unsure about anything in your paperwork... you need to ask. I do know that if you spend the money on the 'wrong' things... you may have to pay the money back or even risk losing any future payments... so you need to be SURE about everything.

Sherry,
You really have to understand your SSI papers. If you don't, contact the office to explain it to you. Some types may allow you to buy a new AC, because it is improving the living conditions of the child. Some types may not allow it because it affects others in the household as well, and should be a household expenditure. You have to understand your own benefits. If you purchase something that is disallowed, you will be responsible for paying it back.

Honey, I live in Australia. I think I know a little about heat.

I was simply asking if air conditioning was really a necessity in May, that it all. It was a question. If you read judgement in that, perhaps you need to take a step back. There was no judgement.

Why bother asking the question if you were fixing it anyway?

Why does she have to have an air conditioning unit? Where do you live that heat is so unbearable in May?
