The Supplemental Security Income program provides monthly payments to adults and children with a disability or blindness who have income and resources below specific financial limits. People age 65 and older without disabilities who meet the financial qualifications may also qualify for SSI payments. The program provides those who qualify with cash to help meet basic needs for food, clothing and shelter.
You may be eligible to receive SSI monthly payments even if you are already receiving Social Security Disability Insurance or retirement benefits.
You can find out if your family member is eligible for SSI by completing the SSA’s Benefit Eligibility Screening Tool. Start the application process by visiting the Social Security Administration to learn everything you need to know about applying. Social Security Disability Insurance and Medicaid for Family Members With Special Needs provide additional information on government programs providing similar support.
