How does Odessa afford her own apartment?


I thought they might have explained this in one of the episodes, but unless I missed it, they never did. She surely doesn't work being the irresponsible dope head that she is. One way I thought they could explain it is by saying Odessa started getting SSI benefits (Supplemental Security Income) years before for mental problems or a learning disability and her parents set up an account that they oversee but allows Odessa to take money out to pay rent and other expenses. I've heard of people doing that so it would make sense if Odessa and her parents were doing it.
