Supplemental Security Income
If you get Social Security benefits, but have limited income and resources (things you own), SSI may be able to help. SSI financing comes from general revenues, not Social Security taxes.
SSI makes monthly payments to people who are age 65 or older or who are blind or disabled. We don’t count some of your income and some of your resources when we decide whether you’re eligible for SSI. Your house and your car, for example, usually don’t count as resources.
Call us for more information or to apply for SSI.
