Disabled and received settlement. Need help.

To make this shorter, I’m disabled and had to go for SSi due to my conditions. I won a settlement of an accident someone else caused me.

Now that I have the settlement money, I would be pushed over the $2k amount limit for SSi. Someone mentioned an ABLE account but this is all confusing (family never taught me anything in life).

What is the best way to begin investing it, and is there a way to keep it while still getting SSi?

Is a financial advisor worth it, or should I instead try to study something online to invest? It’s my dream to own a home one day, unrealistic as it sounds.

I don’t have any help, so I appreciate it.
