What Is The Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Program?
The Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program is a federally-run program that is paid for out of general tax revenues from the U.S. Treasury. The SSI program provides financial benefits and support to individuals with certain types of disabilities who would otherwise be unable to provide for themselves or maintain a decent standard of living. If you have an existing disability that makes you ineligible to receive other types of Social Security benefits, you are over the age of 65, you are blind, you have a mental or physical impairment preventing you from engaging in substantial gainful activity or you meet any of the other qualifications according to the SSI program guidelines, you may be eligible to seek SSI benefits to help supplement your income.
