Some unnecessary monthly payment from Medicaid or S.S.I. which is made purportedly for a disability suffered by the payee. Crazy checks usually go to people already receiving other public assistance checks who have become adept at milking the system for more.

Alarmingly, crazy checks are often approved for simple and common conditions such as a child (usually in a single-parent household) who can't behave in school.

Suprisingly, money from the crazy checks is rarely actually spent on anything associated with treatment of the supposed disability.

Slang for a monthly stipend from the Social Security Disability Insurance department given to recipients deemed unable to work because of psychiatric disability. Application for eligibility is often a lengthy process, but not impossible for those who truly need the assistance. It is NOT a handout or a copout for those who don't feel like working. It is a critical safety net for those who might fall between the cracks and potentially find themselves out on the street.
Thanks to my crazy check I keep a roof over my head.
