It might have no effect because SSD is not based on needs, they don't ask you
how much you have in savings or in an IRA. It is based on what you deserve
from your past earned income.
Ask a lawyer.

A lawyer or someone on SSI could give you more detailed info. But my advice is to deal with now rather than wait for your annual review.
Please don't spend the money gambling. It is one of the most common addictions in my state, and I've learned through hard lessons like blowing my rent money gambling (while manic) that it only ends up hurting you.

Do not gamble. It is no different than spending sprees (my weakness) in bipolars. It will cost you big time.
Go see your pdoc. You may need a medication adjustment.
