    NO they are not enough to live on. I live in Charlotte, NC. I have been receiving SSD benefits because I have kidney failure and I am on Hemodialysis. I receive about $980, monthly. Right away I need to pay my monthly rent of $550, to the apartment complex. After I pay my other household bills, cell phone bill (I do not have a landline), put gas in my car and car insurance I am left with about $50. Last month, I had to pay $850, for rent because the apartment complex after three years decided to charge me $250, plus late fees for my fur baby. This month, my car registration is due that entails me paying an average of $50, for inspection. Then my taxes and registration are $90 combined. When I took my car to get inspected it failed because the rack and pinion are leaking. That will cost $1000, to be fixed. I am having to juggle around what bills I can pass on or pay portions of to take care of other necessities. More resources for low-income apartments for the disabled are needed. More life assistance is needed. I worry and stress everyday about becoming homeless. All I want is to be able to go to my Hemodialysis treatments and take care of my basic life necessities.
