SSI is Supplemental Security Income. Learn about how this Federal benefit can help your family, and how to apply for either a child or adult.
SSI is a monthly cash benefit. It’s for people with disabilities and low income, to help pay for basic needs like food, clothes and housing. We’ll show you how to see if your child or adult family member qualifies for SSI. If so, we’ll walk you through the application process and see what other benefits you may qualify for.
