Supplemental Security Income Archives

How Much Does SSI Pay?

While SSI is a federal program (administered by the Social Security Administration), and the federal government pays a standard base rate of $735 per month, most SSI recipients receive more or less than the federal benefit rate. For starters, the federal benefit rate for couples is of $1,103, which you'll get if you are married and your spouse is eligible for SSI benefits as well. In addition, the federal rate amount regularly changes with cost of living increases.

The Social Security Benefits Application Process

To apply for Social Security Disability (SSD) or SSI benefits based on disability, a person must first make a claim (fill out an application). This is done by contacting the Social Security office, either by phone or by visiting a local office. Those who are making SSD claims can file online.

How Quickly May My Child Receive Benefits?

It can take three to five months for the state agency to decide if your child is disabled. However, for some medical conditions, Social Security make Supplemental Security Income payments right away and for up to six months while the state agency decides if your child is disabled.

Supplemental Security Income for Children with Disabilities

SSI makes monthly payments to people with low income and limited resources who are 65 or older, or blind or disabled. Your child younger than age 18 can qualify if he or she meets Social Security's definition of disability for children, and if his or her income and resources fall within the eligibility limits. 

What is Supplemental Security Income?

Supplemental Security Income, also known as SSI, is a federal income supplement program funded by general tax revenues. The program is designed to aid aged, blind and disabled individuals, who have little or no income. SSI provides cash to meet basic needs such as food, clothing, and shelter. To recieve SSI, you must live in the United States and must be a U.S. citizen or national. Whether you may recieve SSI, also depends on your income and resources.
