What is SSI?
SSI, or Supplemental Security Income, is a federal program that provides monthly payments to people who do not have much income or own many things. SSI is for elderly people, as well as blind or disabled people of any age, including children.

• Be age 65 or older; or
• Be totally or partially blind; or
• Have a medical condition that keeps you from working and is expected to last at least one year or result in
How to apply for SSI
Contact your local SSA office. Parents or guardians usually can apply for blind or disabled children under age 18. In some cases, other third parties can apply for children.
You should take certain items when you apply. Even if you do not have all of the things listed below, apply anyway. The people in the Social Security office can help you get whatever is needed. Please take:
• Your Social Security card or a record of your Social Security number;
• Your birth certificate or other proof of your age;
• Information about the home where you live, such as your mortgage or your lease and landlord’s name;
• Payroll slips, bank books, insurance policies, burial fund records and other information about your income and
the things you own;
• The names, addresses and telephone numbers of doctors, hospitals and clinics that you have been to, if you
are applying for SSI because you are disabled or blind;
• Proof of U.S. citizenship or eligible noncitizen status.
You also should take your checkbook or other papers that show your bank, credit union or savings account number so they can have your benefits deposited directly into your account. Direct deposit protects benefits from loss, theft and mail delay. The money is always on time and ready to use without making a trip to the bank.
