SSI for Those With Low Income and Limited Resources

While Supplemental Security Income, or SSI, is provided by the Social Security Administration, it is separate from Social Security Disability, or SSD. Benefits from Supplemental Security Income are paid to those with low income and limited resources. A person does not have to be disabled to apply for SSI. However, applying for benefits may be just as stressful and challenging as applying for SSD. Hiring a competent, experienced professional is the best step you can take. If you are working but not earning enough to cover the costs of living, you may be eligible to receive benefits from SSI. Contact Andrea Pecora, your local Supplemental Security Income Representative, for assistance in filing for SSI.

What is Considered Income by the SSA?

Any wages, benefits, spouse’s income, and pensions that you receive are considered income, and must be reflected on your application for SSI. Cash, stocks, bonds, bank accounts, and real estate holdings are considered resources, and are taken into account by the Social Security Administration. However, food stamps, your home, land, burial plots, most life insurance, home energy assistance, and housing from private nonprofit organizations are generally not considered income by the SSA.
