Supplemental social security gives me $15 a month, covers my medicare, and qualifies me for Medicaid.
That's right, I said $15.
I play Second Life, and want to get into making stuff to pay for my gaming habit. Car repairs would be nice, too. Currently, I make silly hats. I even got a shop inworld, although there's currently nothing in it.
I asked the Social Security office in Effingham whether I should count actual points as income for the purposes of reporting, or only when I cash out. Most players Say the latter, but most of them only have the IRS and State to deal with.
The guy I was talking to didn't know, and they have to check into it so they have to call back.
