How do I survive financially while waiting for my SSD or SSI disability benefit case to be settled?

Surviving financially on an SSDI or SSI case to be heard or settled is very difficult at times, especially for single people. Married people sometimes it's a little bit better. But each case involves a different scenario altogether and that's more a life question than it is a legal question. People survive however, they have to while their claim is pending. It's a lot easier if you're married, and you have a stable family and a spouse with a stable job. There are people that do end up going homeless or are homeless that get involved in SSDI claims waiting for their cases to be heard or determined by a judge.
