SOCIAL SECURITY QUESTIONS What is the purpose of Supplemental Security Income, or SSI? Answer: SSI is designed to help aged, blind, and disabled people who have little income and few resources. It provides financial assistance to meet basic needs for food, cloth- ing, and shelter. You can receive SSI even if you have not worked and paid into Social Security. SSI is a Federal income supplement program funded by general tax revenues (not Social Security taxes). Find out more at www.socialsecurity. gov/ssi/. Question: My brother recently left me some money. Will this inheritance affect my SSI c benefits? Answer: We consider the money inherited from your brother income for the month you receive it. That could make you ineligible for SSI that month, depending on the amount of the inheritance. If you keep the money into the next month, it becomes a part of your resources. You can- not have more than $2,000 in resources to remain eligible for SSI. You should call Social Security at 1-800-772- 1213 and report the inheri- tance. Representatives can tell you how your eligibility might be affected. People who are deaf or hard of hear- ing may call our toll-free TTY number, 1-800-325- 0778, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday through Friday.

This method provides the best insulation for foods that need to remain cool and helps prevent cross contami- nation. 2) Put cold drinks (i.e. sodas, juices, etc.) in a sepa- rate cooler. This method avoids having the cooler containing perish- able foods to constantly be opened and closed. 3) Carry the cooler in the passenger area of the car. Keeping the cooler in the passenger area instead of in the trunk allows the air con- ditioning to help keep the contents cool. 4) Wash produce such as melons prior to serving. Bacteria can be present on the exterior of melons and can be carried into the edible section when cutting it. 5) Avoid taking dishes to a picnic that contain eggs, homemade Mayonnaise or milk and other dairy products as they are prone to growing bacteria. Store-bought mayonnaise alone is OK, but could pose an issue when mixed with other foods that are not acid- ic. 6) Do not prepare foods more than one day before your picnic unless it is to be frozen. Cooking foods in advance allows for more opportuni- ties for bacteria to grow. 7) Remember the one- hour rule. Do not consume any per- ishable foods that have been sitting out an hour or more on days where the tempera- ture is over 90F. 8) Throw out leftovers. Since most picnic leftovers have been sitting out for more than one hour and have had many people handling with a disinfecting cleaner. Sanitize kitchen drains and disposals monthly by pour- ing a solution of one tea- spoon household bleach in one quart of water down the drain. Wash kitchen sink strainers in the dishwasher weekly. 2. Defrost Foods Safely. Don't attempt to defrost foods quickly by leaving them sit overnight on a kitch- en counter. Use one of the following methods: a. Option I - Place a covered food in a shallow pan on the lowest shelf of the refrigerator. b. Option II - Defrost the food item in the microwave, but keep in mind that you must finish cooking the food immediately thereafter, as some areas of the food may become warm and begin to cook during the microwave defrosting process. c. Option III - If there is not enough time to thaw fro- zen foods, it is safe to cook foods from the frozen state, However, the cooking will take approximately 50% lon- ger than the recommended time for fully thawed or fresh meat and poultry. 3. Practice Proper Marinating. If marinating food, marinate in a refrigera- tor overnight and dispose of any leftover marinade that has been in contact with raw meat. While acids in mari- nades can help tenderize meat, too much vinegar or hot sauce can cause meat to be more stringy and tough. 4. Keep Hot Foods Hot and Cold Foods Cold Hot foods need to be kept at tem- peratures above 140 F and cold foods less than 40 F. Between these two tempera- tures, bacteria can multiply very rapidly and reach dan- gerous levels in as little as two hours. 5. Don't cook with your eyes; Cook with a thermom- theme throw them:out.The eten In order to ensure food :moretime that fi:tm  h-:hed a safe intemal sitting at unsafe tempera- Lures, the more likely harm- ful bacteria has grown. GRILLING TIPS TO REMEMBER 1. Start with a Clean Kitchen: According to a germ study by NSF International, the kitchen sponge and kitchen sink were the germiest places in the home - items that are typi- cally used in multiple stages of the cooking and cleaning process. Avoid cross-con- tamination by ensuring these items are clean by: a. Placing wet sponges in the microwave for two minutes once per day and replacing them often - every two weeks or more as need- ed. A better option for kitch- en cleaning are dishcloths, towels and rags. These items can be sanitized by washing on the clothes washer's hot water cycle with bleach. Replace every 1-2 days. b. Washing and disinfect- ing the sides and bottom of the sink 1-2 times per week temperature, always use a certified food thermometer. Any leftovers should be put away within two hours (one hour if the temperature is over 90 F). 6. Avoid Cross Contamination. Since bacte- ria can easily spread from one food to the next via drip- ping juices, hands, or uten- sils, think ahead to avoid cross contamination. Don't use the same utensils and plates for raw and cooked foods, and always remember to wash your hands before preparing and consuming food.
