As far as I can figure, in order to qualify for the $200 boost, I need to show them that I'm not longer receiving monetary support. That means, in effect, that I can pay an equal share of the household expenses. That in itself is a pretty laughable proposition, but it only really has to work out on paper. It's not like they'll actually check to see where each dollar actually goes. It's almost like a sort of math puzzle. The obnoxious part is I'll probably need documentation to at least prove things like property taxes, utilities, and food bills. I don't think it'll get any more nit picky than that. I really, _really_ don't want to have to go back and deal with the SSA though. The previous trips to their office have been unbearable. I can only imagine it'd be worse now with the more pain issues I've been having recently, not to mention the fact that there's no guarantee this whole thing will pan out anyway.
Still, it is $200.
