What is Supplemental Security Income?
Learn About SSI from the Advocates at Binder & Binder®
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) pays monthly cash benefits to people who are age 65 or older, those who are blind or those who have a disability and who do not own much or have a lot of income. The standard of disability is the same as with Social Security Disability (SSD), however, to qualify for Supplemental Security Income a financial need threshold must also be met. SSI kicks in for the disabled when they do not qualify for SSD or the amount of SSD they will receive puts them below the financial standard.
SSI is not just for adults. Monthly SSI Disability benefits may go to disabled and blind children too.
