Supplemental Security Income

SSI is a federal program administered by the Social Security Administration that pays monthly benefits to people with limited income and resources who are disabled, blind, or age 65 or older. Blind or disabled children as well as adults can get SSI benefits. Unlike Social Security benefits, SSI benefits are not based on your prior work or a family member`s prior work history. In most states, SSI beneficiaries also can get Medicaid to pay for hospital stays, doctor bills, prescription drugs, and other health costs. SSI beneficiaries may also be eligible for food stamps.

How much money you receive depends upon where you live. The basic SSI amount is the same nationwide. Not everyone gets this exact amount. You could get more if you live in a state that adds to the SSI check. You could get less if you or your family have other money coming in each month. Your living arrangements also make a difference in whether you can get SSI and the amount you get. CallĀ  for an appointment with a Social Security representative who will help you apply. You can speak to a service representative between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. on business days.
