If you're going to need much more than $20K to live off of (including housing) after your parents sell the house, then you might have a little trouble doing it. You might qualify for some refundable tax credits, so I would check into that. You also might qualify for subsidized housing, and I certainly would check into that, same for food stamps and other such services. I would consider putting less in stocks, given your situation, but that's just me. Not that it's important, but I assume the $125K is from savings before you became disabled, or from a divorce or inheritance, but I guess it doesn't matter. I doubt you'll be able to save a lot from your disability, but good for you if you can. Good luck.
