These Low Limits Don’t Help

Did you know that there are low income limits for services like social security, agency for persons with disability services, housing authority services, etc?

These low income limits make it hard for people to live life to the fullest and get help they need. There are many people who get social security and different services to help them live more independently but with the low income limits, they can’t pay to get services, pay all the bills and have money to live. Let’s say people made over the income limits, they would most likely lose social security and other services that are meant to help. Then people affected would probably end up in groups homes which would cost the country more or worst case end up homeless left with nothing.

Take social security for example, you can make up to $1000 a month and any $2 you make after they take a dollar. This makes it really hard on people that this is their only option. A suggestion I have and I‘m sure other people will agree. Like with social security, raise the limit from $1000 a month to $2000 a month before they start taking money from social security check.

Do not forget the other services and programs meant to help. They also have income limits. Doing this is a win win both for the government and everyone. The people being affected would be able to pay more in different taxes and contribute more to society.

On another note, let’s stop being so judgmental when it comes to the convicted looking for jobs and stuff.

Quit making it so hard for people you are trying to help. Let’s squeak our wheels until income limits are raised and it stops being so very hard for people!
