No. Once the money is paid out it is that individual's money to use as he/she sees fit to survive. The vast majority are not able to afford things like Netflix because the SSI benefits don't cover all the essential expenses of day-to-day living. Most are just barely scraping by since SSI really doesn't even cover rent, food, medicine, transportation, etc.
