SSI

I wonder what the percentage of Gallaudet students living on SSI? Also how many deaf people living on SSI that originally were born in another country?

SSI Fraud NEW
by: Emily C

I have stories of SSI fraud I've witnessed and heard about. I've had people tell me they're using their SSI checks to buy new cars and fund fancy vacations. I've known educated deaf individuals with advanced degrees who've purposely taken low-paying jobs so as to keep the SSI money rolling in.

I've even seen the argument SSI is "something deaf people do" and perhaps it should be considered "part of deaf culture."

These same people are the ones who castigate others for not following "pure" deaf culture or for having cochlear implants or using their voice or etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.
