What is 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. It provides cash to meet basic needs for food, clothing, and shelter. Medicaid is another benefit that is given along with SSI. The Medicaid coverage starts at the same time you begin receiving your money from SSA.
