Supplemental Security Income
Monthly Supplemental Security Income (SSI) disability payments can be a lifeline for disabled adults and children who have limited income and assets and who don’t qualify for Social Security Disability (SSDI) or who have a low SSDI benefit. You can file for SSI at your closest Social Security office, by telephone, and in certain circumstances online. How to apply for SSI, how disability is determined, and how to appeal a denial including requesting a hearing are the same for SSDI and SSI as are many of the issues that come up after you have been approved. Even some of the commonly used forms are the same. The SSI articles below offer important, easy-to-understand information about eligibility factors that apply only to SSI.
