SSI BENEFITS
Supplemental Security Income
​What is SSI?
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a federal program designed to provide income to individuals who are disabled, blind, or aged, and who meet certain income and resource guidelines. SSI is funded by general tax revenues, not Social Security (FICA) taxes. It provides cash to meet basic needs for food, clothing, and shelter. 

Resource Limits
To qualify for SSI, your countable resources (i.e., cash, land, vehicles, and other personal property) must not be worth more than $2,000 for an individual or $3,000 for a couple. There are exceptions to what constitutes "countable resources". These exceptions include the home that you live in and the land that it is on, one vehicle, and retroactive SSDI or SSI benefits for up to nine months after you receive them.
