Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a federal government program that pays out monthly benefits to the elderly and the disabled with limited income and financial resources. It is different from Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), which is available only to individuals who have worked enough to qualify (paid through payroll taxes). SSI can be collected by low-income individuals who have never worked before, and can be received in addition to SSDI.
Who is eligible to receive SSI benefits?
Individuals who live in certain institutions, a public emergency shelter for the homeless, a publicly operated community residence, and other approved institutions, you may qualify for SSI. You can discuss your eligibility with an SSI lawyer at United States Disability Center to learn more.
