What is Supplemental Security Income (SSI)?

Supplemental Security Income provides money to meet the basic needs of food, shelter, clothing, and the like for certain individuals.

Qualifications for this program include:

  • You must be at least 65 years of age or blind or disabled
  • You must have a certain limit of monthly resources or income
  • You must be a U.S. citizen or a non-citizen resident who meets certain requirements
  • You must be residing in the U.S. or the Mariana Islands

In the case of disability, your disability must be complete enough that you cannot perform any type of work whether it is work that you previously did or other work for which you could be trained. Typically, you cannot own more than $2,000 in assets as a single person or up to $3,000 as a couple. Assets are anything of value other than your residence and one car or vehicle. This includes checking and savings accounts, other investments, IRAs and retirement accounts, stocks and bonds, life insurance policies, annuities, and anything else of monetary value.

SSI is designed for those in financial distress; thus, you typically cannot make more than $783 in monthly income as a single person or $1,175 as a married couple in 2020. However, more complicated calculations exist that offer exclusions to countable income. You need to have your individual circumstances reviewed by our attorney to determine what can and cannot be counted towards income in your application.
