It is illegal to gamble ssi money?

Report as

Tiger's answer is pretty judgemental. It's your money and you are on SSI for a reason. I do appreciate giving you caution about losing what little income you receive to gambling. :)

I'm sorry you feel I'm judge mental but ssi is a cash assisted program for people 65 or older,disabled,or blind that has limited income or assets. I know this money comes from the general fund of the treasury. We put that money in the treasury. This money is suppose to HELP make their lives easier. Not gamble.

So let's take away any of the small joys they may get, because somehow they're less than us? It's none of your business what the poster chooses to do with THEIR check. If they lose what they gamble , they're out the cash

Boo153. I agree w you. It is not our business. Tiger, I receive disability and currently have a broken neck. I don't gamble but are you telling me I don't have a right to if I wanted to like you do? I contributed to this same federal entity as well. Pretty scary when one citizen determines they have dominion over another. If the federal and state governing bodies don't dictate how people spend their money why should you? Maybe @"they" shouldn't be allowed to buy Oreos or chew gum...

Why would you? That is taxpayers money that is suppose to help you have food,shelter,and whatever else to live. Gambling is not a necessary of life

It's not illegal and if you can do it without causing yourself financial damage, then go for it

It is in my book. That's my money your spending. I would hope you would have the common sense God gave you not to gamble away my money.

ITs also the posters money. Since you don't know the circumstances, who made you judge and jury?
