Supplemental Security Income
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a need-based income program for the aged, blind and disabled who have limited income and assets.Age 65 is the minimum for the age category, although the blind or disabled can be any age. The federal portion of the benefit is administered by the Social Security Administration (SSA), and some states offer a supplemental amount that may be administered by either the SSA or a state agency. Many states also give Medicaid eligibility automatically to those who are SSI eligible.
