Money Matters - Tzedaka For Therapy
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Yehonoson Hool
Question:
Answer:

The general rule is that a person is considered "poor," and may accept charity (such as ma'aser money) for their expenses even if they have savings, as long as these savings are only for basic requirements.


Someone who has additional savings for things like a car etc would probably not be regarded as an "Oni" – a poor person.
