I know you cannot buy a Home on welfare checks and we Are tired of keeping these people up that can get out and work and the ones that need help they will not help Thorn. Anon. A. There is no policy in Public assistance which forbids ownership of property when used As a residence. When computing the budget social services uses the amount paid on the Home each month instead of the amount paid for rent. However one is not allowed to own property other than the place of residence which has a value above the Public assistance scale. This is based on the number of people in the Home receiving assistance. For example one person receiving Aid to the aged is allowed to have up to 11.000 in Reserve and still remain eligible for assistance. If one person has More than $1,000. He is not eligible. The Reserve scale for two is adding $50 00 for each person Over two. Three persons Are allowed $1,150. Four $1,200. Etc. The Reserve scale is Only one of the Many eligibility factors.
