I need to pay state property taxes and am on disability/food stamps/energy assistance. Will taking out a loan against my life insurance or a bank loan affect my social security disability benefits or food stamp amount? Does a loan count as income, it's being repaid monthly? any links to official documents would be great...I can only locate online info on (Supplemental) SSI, not disability

Can not find anything online , because it is an easy question . Income is what you take home is yours. A loan is not yours . Therefore, it is never income. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Also, you can think this way ... if you have some income , then you could put it in a bank account . That's an advantage . That could affect your benefits . You can buy a car . That's an advantage . It could affect your benefits . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus If you take a loan and buy a car , then who owns the car? For starters ... the bank . So basically , a loan is not an asset . MedlinePlus is a responsibility . MedlinePlus Liabilities not affect your benefits . They are not income because you owe money at the end .
