Supplemental Security Income also known as SSI is a federal program ran by the Social Security Administration that provides extra money to low-income people who are blind, disabled, or over the age of 65. SSI provides cash to those who qualify to help meet basic needs for food, clothing, and shelter.
A person who receives SSDI, can also receive SSI if the members of their household do not earn over a certain amount of money per month. The amount of money a household can earn and still have a member qualify for SSI depends on how many parents and children live in the household as well as other factors.
Unlike SSDI, a person applying for SSI does not have to have worked a certain amount in the past 10 years to qualify for SSI.
