Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is assistance for individuals who are age 65 or older, blind, or have a disability and limited income. It is provided in the form of cash benefits on a monthly basis. SSI is designed to provide cash support for basic shelter, food, and clothing needs for eligible recipients. Furthermore, SSI recipients are also typically eligible to receive Medicaid health benefits as well. In addition to disability requirements, one must also meet specified income guidelines for determining financial need in order to qualify to receive of Supplemental Security Income benefits.
The process of determining one’s eligibility and applying for Supplemental Security Income can be a time consuming effort and present challenges that cause many applicants to require support in order to yield a successful outcome in their case.
