Understanding SSI Benefits
The term "SSI benefits" refers to the amount of monthly financial help from the federal government that an individual or family receives once their claim for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is approved. Benefits are applied on a case by case basis, depending on one's particular situation, and will often include a lump sum at the beginning to include back payments.
Meeting Certain Criteria
In order to qualify for SSI (Supplemental Security Income), your family's combined income and resources (assets) must be less than $3,000. If you are not married, your income and resources must be less than $2,000. If approved to receive benefits, you will receive a monthly income payment up to the maximum federal rate determined by the SSA (
Social Security Administration). In some cases, the federal rate may be supplemented by state payments, which will increase your monthly payment.
