Thread: Lots of questions

    1) since I'm currently on SSI I can not have more than $2000 in the bank. So for others in this situation how do you save for a car, medical equiptment, etc?


    Invest. Silver is relatively cheap and is used in computers and cell phones. CD's are another way to save, but I don't know if that would be considered money in the bank or not. Invest in a DJIA fund. Get incorporated, start a acct in the business name to keep the money.

    you cannot invest while on ssi as it counts as income.

    the google limelight project has scholarships for those with sci.

    I have osteoporosis (I am injured 25 years). About 5 years ago I had a DEXA scan and it showed severe osteoporosis in my hips and ostepenia in my spine. I take calcium, vitamin D and Fosamax. I don't really do anything different in terms of my daily life.
