Once a year, I will get a rent rebate of about $500. When I had my dog, that money went to giving my dog an annual checkup, and any medicine that he might need. I try to make sure I can pay my annual bills with this money. Since I have a $2,000 asset limit, this money must be spent within 1 month. This anxiety is one reason why I feel that asset limits with SSI should be at least $5,000. If I really want to get something that is nice, I will also rely on this money.
