Understanding Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
Maryland Social Security Disability Law Firm
If you are age 65 or older, or suffering from a serious disability such
as blindness, you could be eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
This federal government program offers monthly benefits to help aged,
low-income, or disabled individuals meet their basic living needs. In
order to be eligible for Supplemental Security Income, you must demonstrate
that your income and liquefiable assets are below a certain state level,
and that you have a medical condition preventing your employment.
Rules for Obtaining SSI
SSI benefits specifically target individuals with low-income and few resources.
Resources such as cash, real estate, bank accounts, stocks, or investments
are taken into consideration when determining eligibility.
The resource limits to qualify for SSI benefits are as follows:
- Single individual: $2,000
- Married couple: $3,000
The program also provides federal cash payments of up to $721 per month
for basic necessities such as food and shelter.
