I live with my parents who make decent money – will that affect me trying to obtain my SSI benefits?

Yes, very possibly it could affect you. The reason is that your parents’ income could be “deemed” to be yours. Deeming is a word that Social Security uses which is a legal word and under these circumstances it would probably be best for you to check with an attorney to see if the deeming schedule that Social Security uses is actually the correct one for you.
