Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a federal program administered through the local Social Security office that guarantees a minimum monthly income to those in need. It is designed to supplement the limited income and assets of older, blind, or disabled individuals. Those who are age 65, blind, or disabled can qualify even if they have never worked. A home, personal goods, a car, and insurance policies may not necessarily be included to determine eligibility. Information on eligibility can be obtained through a local Social Security office.
