SSI status IF receiving inheritance

A friend, dependent on SSI for many years, now can possibly be the recipient of inheritance or a settlement in the near future. This unexpected money may be sizable enough to sustain him.

If he receives the hoped for money, he understands he will lose his SSI eligibility and associated medical coverage.

BUT....will he be able to keep the money? Or, does he have to pay back the government for years of SSI support?
