Individual Development Account (IDA) an account that helps you save money for a special need, education, a home or to start a business. Although you receive SSI this account will not affect your benefits. You contribute money from your earnings from work. With an IDA, your contributions are matched with money from your State's TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) program or from special funds called "demonstration project" money. The matching money may help you reach your goal sooner. To find out more, contact your state TANF agency or local Social Security Office.
