Supplement Security Income (SSI)

SSI is managed by the Social Security Administration (SSA), is a cash assistance program available financially eligible for people who are over 64 years old, disabled or blind. Because SSI is not determined on your work history or based on financial eligibility, however, it is not a welfare insurance program. This definition is the same as disability applies to SSDI and as to SSI, if you are eligible for Supplemental Security Income Benefits will normally have an insufficient work history that meets the Social Security Disability Income requirements.

In order to be financially eligible for SSI, must be both resource eligible and income eligible. You must be income eligible and your countable income has to be less than the standard of need. For 2016, the standard of need is $733.00 for an individual and for a couple it is $1,100.00 per month. SSI countable income is unearned and earned income, also maintenance of any kind support provide to you. For example, payment by a friend, family member, or have a trust for utilities or rent, food, free room and board by certain limits.

If you received gifts of cash it will not count as unearned income. However, the first $20.00 of income given each month will not be counted. Additionally earned income can be $65.00 per month will not be counted if one-half of the earning is over $65.00 in any month is not counted. Countable income includes household members such as parents, minor child, spouse, with a countable income recourses of $2,000.00 or more per month is not eligible for Supplemental Security Income and gifts will affect your SSI eligibility.

SSDI recipients are different than receiving SSI will not be eligible for Medicare Coverage because they have not paid enough into the Federal System through work wages. However in most states, SSI applicants will automatically be eligible for Medicaid Benefits. In some other states, applicants must file for an independent application for Medicaid and have to meet requirements definition of disability.

Matter of fact SSDI and SSI are responsible by the same Federal Agency and for medical disability criteria, but they are very different programs.
