If this income is permanent than your income will be looked at like any other income. If it is only temporary it may be a lot harder to find a lender that would be able to do that for you. It's similar to what the comment below states where lenders may want to see at least 3 years of continues disability income so that they can be reassured that you will be able to pay off the debt.<br/><br/>If you have any other questions or need a loan please contact me through the information on my profile page. I hope this helps and good luck!
