Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a federal program that provides monthly payments to people who have limited income and few resources. SSI is for elderly people, as well as blind or disabled people of any age, including children.
To get SSI, you must:
- Be age 65 or older;
- Be totally or partially blind; or
- Have a medical condition that keeps you from working and is expected to last at least one year or result in death.
