The Social Security’s Supplemental Security Income program offers monthly payments to individuals aged 65 and above, as well as adults and children with disabilities or blindness who have limited income and financial resources.
Social Security’s Supplemental Security Income program is reaching out to individuals in dire financial need to inform them about potential eligibility for SSI benefits
In response to the impact of the pandemic, the administration has identified underserved communities in both rural and urban areas throughout the country. Social Security‘s Supplemental Security Income program focus is particularly on areas that have experienced a significant decline in SSI applications. These outreach efforts prioritize regions where a majority of residents live at or below the federal poverty threshold.
Recipients of Social Security’s Supplemental Security Income program may also qualify for additional financial assistance programs, including the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, Medicaid, and discounted internet services provided through the Federal Trade Commission’s Affordable Connectivity Program.
Furthermore, individuals who are already beneficiaries of Social Security may be eligible for SSI benefits
