Determining eligibility for SSI

Those individuals who do not have enough recent work credits to participate in the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program may be eligble to receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. The medical criteria for disability are the same for both programs.

The U.S. Social Security Administration (SSA) has specific guidelines for SSI eligibility, which can be found on the official SSI website. SSI benefits are a special type of benefit government-subsidized intended to supplement the low income of eligible individuals. Eligible individuals include the disabled or the elderly. Disabled children may also qualify. If the individual is disabled, elderly or blind but has not met work credit requirements for SSDI benefits, SSI benefits may be a viable option.

Your eligibility for SSI benefits depends on your income and resources, or things that you own. Certain income may not be included in your total amount, and factors such as marital status and student status may affect eligibility as well. The maximum income allowable under SSI depends on your state of residence, typically based on the median income of all residents, which can fluctuate every year. Resources can include your cash, bank account savings, stocks, and real estate assets. If your total countable resources fall below the maximum allowed, you may be eligible for SSI.
