Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a federal program in the United States designed to provide financial assistance to individuals who have low income and limited assets and are either aged 65 and older, blind, or disabled. Administered by the Social Security Administration, SSI aims to provide cash assistance to eligible individuals to meet basic needs for food, clothing, and shelter. Unlike Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), SSI eligibility is not based on an individual’s work history but rather on financial need, and the program is funded from general tax revenues.
