Supplemental Security Income

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a Federal income supplement program funded by general tax revenues (not Social Security taxes):

It is designed to help aged, blind, and disabled people, who have little or no income; and

It provides cash to meet basic needs for food, clothing, and shelter.


According to the Social Security Administration, anyone who is:

  • age 65 or older; or
  • is blind; or
  • disabled

AND, who:

  • has limited income; and
  • has limited resources; and
  • is a U.S. citizen or national and a resident of the United States (for more detailed information, refer to SSA website)
