t keeping up. Even that is going to be tough, as people have already experienced higher living expenses this year with no sign of that letting up near-term," said Gada.

However, Gada notes there are steps that people relying on SSDI can take to help better control escalating costs.

"It's very difficult when your income is fixed, but your expenses are not fixed and generally just seem to be increasing," said Gada. "But the first step is to honestly assess your financial situation."

According to Gada, this involves creating a budget to track what you spend monthly and your monthly income. The next step is identifying ways to increase the money that comes in and decrease the money that goes out. For many individuals this means getting a handle on major sources of debt.

Pay Down Credit Card Debt

National credit card debt per credit card borrower increased 8.6 percent to $1,717 in the second quarter of 2008, compared to the same period 2007, according to a study by TransUnion.

If you have credit card debts, your goal should be to pay off high interest credit cards or consolidate them to save on interest charges," explained Gada.

Allsup offers a free Credit Card Roll Down calculator to help people see how they can roll down credit card debt, in addition to a Personal Debt Consolidation calculator.
